Wayne Williams: "Local Boy," Secretary of State (Video)

Posted By on Wed, Nov 5, 2014 at 11:22 AM

County Clerk Wayne Williams was among those reveling in Republican victory last night as midterm election results rolled in, defeating Democrat Joe Neguse in the race for Colorado Secretary of State with 48.5 percent of the vote. Though he did not attend the GOP victory party at Stargazers Theater last night, Williams' name rang throughout the crowd as updates came through the PA system. "Our local boy," the event announcer called him repeatedly.

In a race where the Indy editorial board said voters couldn't go wrong, we ended up endorsing "our local boy" Williams, trusting his experience in running local elections here in the Springs.

Williams, who attended the state GOP victory last night at the Denver Tech Center, spread his gratitude across both sides of the aisle, saying he's "honored" that the statewide electorate trusts him to oversee state elections.

Here's a portion of his acceptance speech, courtesy of a party attendee:
