Euer coasts to Senate primary win

Dawn Euer easily outpaced her opponents in a four-person primary Tuesday and will represent the Democrats in the District 13 Senate general election next month.

Euer won all four primary districts in Jamestown and Newport, garnering almost half of the vote, an impressive figure in a four-way race. In Jamestown, she won 64 percent of the vote, taking 341 of 532 votes cast.

“I’m absolutely thrilled,” she said Tuesday night while celebrating the victory at the Firehouse Theater in Newport. “I want to thank the voters of Jamestown and Newport for believing in our campaign and our vision for the district, but most importantly I want to thank them for choosing me as their Democratic nominee for state Senate. “
