LABELLE, FL. -- Despite registered Democratic Party voters outnumbering Republicans by almost two to one, Hendry county voters almost overwhelmingly voted in a Republican slate Tuesday. With the vote not yet compiled in full on the Supervisor of Election website, all Republican candidates were shown to be voted in except for two County Commissioner seats that will still be held by Democratic incumbents, Bo Pelham and Bill Maddox, Jr.
The Hendry Sheriff race was won by former Sheriff Ronnie Lee taking back his position from incumbent Steve Worley. Two sisters, Pauline New Born (D) and Suzanne Harper (R) both lost their bids respectively for State Legislature and County Commission.
