For a second time, Washtenaw County Sheriff, Jerry Clayton, has fended off a challenge from longtime law enforcement professional, Ken Magee. In Tuesday's Democratic primary race, Clayton garnered over 75-percent of the vote. Clayton has no Republican opposition in November. 

In the November, 2016 general election, Magee ran as a Republican against Clayton and lost. Clayton was first elected Sheriff in November, 2008.
