ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Steve Stenger defeated incumbent Charlie Dooley for the Democratic vote in the St. Louis County Executive primary election.
With about 84 percent of the precincts reporting, Stenger had locked in nearly 69 percent of the vote, with Dooley having nearly 28 percent and Ronald Levy with just over 3 percent of the vote.
Dooley conceded shortly after the results of the 84 percent of the precincts were released.
Smiling ear to ear, Stenger called his victory over 10-year incumbent Charlie Dooley a clear message from voters.
“This was an election that really transcended party politics,” he said. “This was an election about change. I think the people of St. Louis County have really spoken with a loud voice.”
