Warren County voters have set the field for some important local November matchups.

David Lanphear emerged at the top vote-getter in a five-way primary for Warren County Family Court Judge. Rebecca Adams Simpson came in second place, only one point behind Lanphear.

Lanphear and Adams Simpson both move on to the November general election. The judgeship was formerly held by Margaret Huddleston, who died from cancer in January.

Of the nine candidates for Bowling Green City Commission, eight will compete in the fall, and ultimately four will be elected. Incumbent Joe Denning received the most votes, followed closely behind incumbent Melinda Hill and challenger Sue Perrigin.

Rounding out the field that will appear on the November ballot are Rick Williams, Slim Nash, Mike Clark, Mark Bradford, and Don Langley.
