There's a new sheriff in town.
Sgt. Cory Aukes unseated Hubbard County Sheriff Frank Homer by 500 votes Tuesday evening in a race where expenditures topped $40,000.
"I'm overwhelmed right now," Aukes said at midnight.
He said he would work with Homer the next two months to ensure a smooth transition into office when he assumes it Jan. 4, 2011.
Aukes garnered 5,021 votes to Homer's 4,534.
