Douglas County Sheriff primary’s 2nd place candidate speaks out: “Send a message out to both candidates. Write my name in.”
OMAHA, Nebraska — The top deputy sheriff of Douglas County is inviting voters to write in his name in the general election for sheriff.
Wayne Hudson mentioned the constant and seemingly endless drama of the race as a cause for people to write in his name.
In a Facebook video announcing his “endorsement,” Hudson stated, “It appears that one, if not both, candidates are covered in controversy, dipped in drama, and peppered with lies.”
“Communicate with both candidates. Please enter my name.”
Greg Gonzalez defeated Hudson in the Democratic primary election by a score of 51% to 48%, placing Hudson in second place.
Gonzalez and his Republican opponent Aaron Hanson have exchanged jabs since then.
Hudson stated that the candidates are discussing racist comments, questionable uses of force, questionable backgrounds, and stolen emails.
The contenders hope to succeed Tim Dunning, who will retire in 2020.
