TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Kevin Dahl will be the Democratic nominee -- and likely the Councilmember -- for Ward 3 in Tucson.
Preliminary results show Dahl with a strong lead, at 59.59% to 39.66%, and 89% of precincts reporting.
The seat opened earlier this year when Councilmember Paul Durham stepped down in February. He had been recovering from a personal injury earlier this year and helped his husband undergo treatment for terminal cancer.
Mayor Regina Romero nominated Karen Uhlich to fill the seat, and she was later approved by the council. Uhlich had served as council member for Ward 3 until 2017, when she decided not to seek re-election.
In the heavily Democratic Ward 3, Dahl is likely to win the general election in November.
