Barr Wins GOP Sheriff's Race, Candidates To Hold Beer Summit

Wes Barr and Jack Campbell plan a “beer summit” today to mend fences after a long and bitter campaign that ended Tuesday, with Barr scoring a decisive victory in the GOP primary for Sangamon County sheriff.


But not everyone may be willing to let go so easily.


Incumbent sheriff Neil Williamson… who had backed Campbell in the primary… says he’s not sure he can endorse Barr after arguing through the campaign that Barr was unqualified to be sheriff.


Williamson says he may sit out the general election. Barr will face Jeff Regan, who got enough write-in votes Tuesday to become the Democratic nominee.


Hear election night coverage of the sheriff's race here.
