"It was a nail-biter four years ago, and it was a nail-biter tonight," said Warren, who bested challenger Donald Walton for the nomination -- just as she did four years ago. "I'm surprised I have any nails left."
Also winning his race was Republican incumbent District 1 Commissioner Gene R. Beck, who defeated challenger Eric Merrell.
"(Walton) was a tough opponent," Warren said.
In the District 1 race, 2,863 votes were cast. Beck garnered 1,667 of them.
Beck has a long history with the commissioners. He has served in that capacity off and on since the early 1970s.
"The biggest thing I want to see is the 911 center get finished," Beck said. "I want to make sure it's done right, but that it's done as cheaply as it can be done … and not with taxpayer money."
Warren is looking forward to the general election in November.
"I'm going to use this primary as a basis for how I'm going to go into the general election," she said. "I can see now where I need to improve, and I can hit it even harder."
Warren's reasons for wanting to remain on the commission are deeply personal.
"There's just so much more to do in our county, and I want to be a part of it," she said. "We have two kids we're raising here, and I want make sure they're raised in a good community."
Beck said the support he received from his constituents was humbling.
"I really appreciate what everyone has done," he said. "I hope I can have another four years on the commission so I can keep working."
