Fannin County voters selected a new county judge Tuesday. Incumbent Republican Spanky Carter lost the primary election to his challenger Randy Moore.

Moore received 3,251 votes and Carter received 1,503. That means just over 68 percent of the people who cast ballots in the race selected Moore. Neither Moore nor Carter could be reached for comment on the election Wednesday.
