In the end, Monument Police Chief Jake Shirk was no match for El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa.

As of 8:30, the county Clerk & Recorder's Web site showed Maketa with a nearly 3-to-1 advantage over his challenger. (To see the numbers, scroll to the bottom of the screen; the sheriff's race is listed third from last.)

The 73-27 percent margin marks a departure from the early stages of the campaign, when Shirk surprised Maketa by taking 44 percent of the vote at the local Republican Assembly.
