Pinion Wins Lubbock County Clerk Run-Off Election

The votes are final. Kelly Pinion will be Lubbock's next county clerk. Pinion won with 62% of the vote. Mike Arismendez had 38%.

Arismendez says he is surprised by the results. He held his watch-party at Caprock Home Health Care of Lubbock. Supporters there were hopeful the numbers would take a turn in his favor. In the end, the gap in the percentage of votes remained too large.

"There was a lot of negativity that took place and a lot of half truths. There was information put out to the voting public. I just know my campaign was run in a positive way. My campaign was run on the issues. That is what I will continue to stick with," said Arismendez.
