Eugene "Bugger" McArthur advances in Tribal primary election

Almost 100 people sat in the Golden Eagle Bingo Hall in Mahnomen Tuesday night to find out who will advance to the White Earth Tribal general election in June.

And Nearly 3,000 voted in the primary election that has three seats up for grabs.

Eugene "Bugger" McArthur received the most votes -- 21 percent -- in the run for secretary/treasurer, while Robert J. Durant came in second with 17 percent of the votes.

In the run for District II representative, Terrence "Terry" Tibbetts Sr. will advance with 44 percent of the votes. Kenneth M. Coleman Jr. received the second most votes with 24 percent.

The two who ran for District I representative in the primary -- Steven "Punky" Clark and incumbent Irene "Rene" Auginaush -- will automatically advance to the general election.

For the rest of the election results, see this week's Tribune.
