San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore held a wide lead over his inside-the-department challenger Dave Myers, 56.4 percent to 43.4 percent, with 87 percent of precincts reporting early Wednesday.With only two candidates, the winner will be declared this month — and not have to wait until a November runoff as other races would.
Myers is the Democratic-endorsed candidate, with Gore counting on Republican support.
In the race for assessor/recorder/county clerk, incumbent Ernie Dronenburg was leading Democratic-endorsed challenger Matt Strabone, 63.6 percent to 36.2 percent, in another race that avoids a November runoff.
San Diego County Treasurer/Tax Collector Dan McAllister was running unopposed.
