LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

On Tuesday evening in the Democratic Primary runoff, Lorenzo "Bubba" Sedeño defeated incumbent County Commissioner Gilbert Flores by a tally of 562 to 543 votes. 

But that might not be the end of the story.

Former candidate for City Council and current political activist Armando Gonzales has filed a complaint with the Lubbock County elections office.  He claims that an election worker at one polling location made comments that could be construed as support for Sedeño. 

Gonzales also claims that Sedeño supporters were campaigning on election day too close to at least one polling location.  Gonzales says he does not represent the Flores Campaign in any way but he has been an outspoken supporter of Flores.

KCBD NewsChannel 11 became aware of the complaint after business hours on Wednesday.  We will follow up with the Elections Office to see if officials wish to comment.
