Former KRBC anchor Downing Bolls won his race to become the next Taylor County Judge, winning 60 percent of the vote over opponent Curtis Tomme.

Bolls got into the race fairly late and spent much less than his opponent. However, he somehow managed a majority victory by a 20 percent margin.

Bolls tells bigcountryhomepage.com he credits the victory to voters willing to vote for change. He said his campaign worked hard to overcome the stigma that the Taylor County Judge position was judicial in nature. Bolls said people around town were asking him whether he had a law background up until the polls closed Tuesday.

"I'm almost pinching myself tonight," said Bolls. "I keep thinking I'm going to wake up and think I still have all this election stuff to take care of."

Bolls said he was humbled by the vote, Since he wont take office until January, he says hell be looking for a part-time job.

Bolls has no Democratic opponent for the general election.
