In the biggest McPherson County surprise of the night. Keith Becker upset incumbent McPherson County Commissioner Duane Patrick 912-665.

All Democratic votes for District 1 County Commissioner were write in ballots, so the opponent in November for Becker is unclear at this time.

Becker said, "I think McPherson County has tremendous opportunity for growth. I'd like to see more people that cross county lines that would settle in our county and continue to spend that money in our county versus spending it in another."
