By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

Qualifying for the 2012 local, state, congressional and senate primaries closed this week and several local and state candidates won re-election handily while others must overcome party primary opponents and, for some, general election opponents.
Those returning to office without any opposition are:
• Danny Stevens, County Commission District 5, the lone Democrat on the board and its chair, won re-election for fourth  time.  He was first elected is 2000 after winning a runoff primary against incumbent Commissioner Frank Davis. In 2004 Stevens won the Democratic primary fending off challenges by Duncan McCallum, K.P. Reddy and Jim "Jimbo" Williams. He went on to win over Republican Jack Screws in the general election. In 2008, he defeated Cal Byrd in the Democratic primary and went on to win over Republican Jerry Robinson in the general election.
• Linda Fugate, tax collector, won unopposed for the third time since winning in 2000 when she faced Sheila Farrel, a Republican, in the general election. Fugate is the only one among five constitutional officers who is a Democrat.
