GRAND JUNCTION — There are going to be some new sheriffs in parts of Colorado following Tuesday's primary.

James van Beek beat longtime Eagle County sheriff Joe Hoy in the Republican primary. Hoy has served as sheriff for 12 years and was seeking his last term.

In Montezuma County, challenger Steve Nowlin beat Sheriff Dennis Spruell for the Republican nomination. Spruell had to petition onto the ballot after failing to win a spot through the caucus system.

State Sen. Steve King will be the GOP candidate seeking to replace outgoing Sheriff Stan Hilkey in strongly Republican Mesa County. The Daily Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1meVHrS ) reports that King beat the self-proclaimed constitutional candidate, John Pennington, despite the release of a report that found he had filed misleading timecards while working as a temporary department employee.
