Turner, another first-term Democrat, also advanced to the fall general election after garnering 82 percent of the vote against challenger Wyler Dykeman, 3,739 to 819.

“I’ve got to thank Wyler for running a good campaign,” Turner said Tuesday after the primary concluded, in which about 27 percent of Clark County voters participated.

Turner will now face William Roy Collins Jr. in November while Doyle will face off against Randy Steagall.
