Dalbec, Wick carry Douglas County races
Douglas County voters elected to keep their sheriff, at least until the November primary.
Democratic Sheriff Tom Dalbec remains in the running in November when he faces a challenge from Republican candidate Daniel Bethards, a Lac Courte Orreilles narcotics officer. Bethards ran unopposed in the Republican primary.
Dalbec carried almost 55 percent of the vote over Democratic challenger Mark Liebaert, a member of the Douglas County Board and former Superior police officer.
