Mina wins Sheriff's race, Property Appraiser Singh gets booted in Orange County

Incumbent Orange County Sheriff John Mina was poised to win his primary election on Tuesday night with a nearly 40% lead over his nearest challenger Andrew Darling.  

Embattled District 1 Commissioner Betsy VanderLey lost to challenger Nichole Wilson by a margin of roughly 14%.

Two notable races in Orange County provided some surprises Tuesday night.

Orange County property appraiser Rick Singh, an incumbent, was on track to be unseated by State Rep. Amy Mercado.

Meanwhile, State Rep. Monique Worrell won a hotly contested bid for Ninth Circuit State Attorney to replace Aramis Ayala.   Worrell defeated retired judge Belvin Perry Jr., who had won the endorsement of a number of local officials, including Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings.
