In a five-way race for two Republican Commissioner seats, one incumbent was unseated and one held on in unofficial results Tuesday.
Incumbent Jann Lowder received 21.05%, challenger Heather Couick 20.22%. Challenger Dorian Creeden came in last with 12.16% of the vote.
All three challengers have been critical of the incumbent Commissioners opposition to Alcoa's relicensing.
Ascuitto and Dennis will face Democrats Jim Lisk and Tracey Wyrick in the general election.
In State Senate District 33, Davidson and Montgomery counties, incumbent Stan Bingham edged Eddie Gallimore with 40.42% of the vote in a three way race to retain his seat. Both challengers favored relicensing Alcoa. There are no Democratic challengers for the seat in the general election.
In both races the challengers combined garnered a majority of the vote.
