One of the most watched races in the Houston County is that for sheriff.

Four-term incumbent sheriff Lamar Glover was opposed by republican Andy Hughes a former sergeant with the Dothan police department.

And Hughes is victorious with 64 percent of the votes over Glover’s 36 percent percent.

News 4 Erika Kurre was at the Wiregrass Rehabilitation Center last night and spoke to the newly elected sheriff.

“"I'm very excited about this. It's going to be a challenge, a very big challenge and I want to go full speed into it January 15th and do what's right for the citizens of Houston County," said Hughes.

Hughes said that he ran a good campaign and was expecting a win but was surprised by the sizeable margin of the victory.
