Rogers trounces Paolino in 17th Senate Dist. race

With 55 percent of the precincts reporting so far, it appears Lance Rogers is on his way to winning the Republican nomination to run for the 17th District state Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Connie Williams.

With 83 of 152 precincts reporting, Rogers has 5,564 votes, or 61 percent of the vote to Lisa Paolino's 3,597 votes, or 39 percent.

Rogers will face state Rep. Daylin Leach, who ran unopposed in the Democratic primary, in the fall.
