JONESBORO, AR - Primary election day has dawned cloudy and overcast over Region 8.

In Craighead County, voters will head to polling stations to decide a variety of races, but the two that are on the minds of most voters are the races for County Judge and Sheriff. 

A 4-person Sheriff's race features incumbent Jack McCann, who is being challenged by local law enforcement officers Kenny Walker of Bay and Bobby Johnson of Cash, and Jonesboro resident Bob Peevey, a former U.S. Marshall and Secret Service Agent.  All four men are running as Democrats.

The Democratic primary also features a repeat of the 2002 race for County Judge, as incumbent Dale Haas is once again being challenged by former State Representative Jerry Allison of Jonesboro.
