HOCKLEY COUNTY, TX (KCBD) -

The dispute continues over runoff ballots for the Hockley County Sheriff's Republican primary.

Attorneys for candidate R. C. Cheek say the ballots were triple-checked Friday in front of the district clerk.

They say it was the same outcome as the first count - giving Cheek the win by only one vote.

Cheek's representatives say two blank ballots are still missing and they are confident they will win the lawsuit.

Incumbent Sheriff Paul Scarborough says he doesn't agree with Friday's findings. He says they are still going to court.

The hearing is scheduled to start Tuesday.
