As of Monday afternoon, only one vote separates Paul Scarborough and R. C. Cheek in the GOP Primary runoff election for Sheriff of Hockley County. Scarborough has requested a recount which will be done Wednesday afternoon.

On election night the tally was 1082 votes to 1080 in favor of Cheek.  Since then, a provisional ballot has come in for Scarborough. 

An employee in the Hockley County Clerk's Office said Monday that she and her coworkers had not been given information about the recount.  A call to the Hockley County Republican Chairwoman has not yet been returned.

Scarborough has been serving as the interim Sheriff, taking over where Kevin Davis left off.
