SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Election results show that incumbent Jeff Buhman has held off a challenger in Tuesday's Republican primary race for Utah County Attorney.

State election results show Buhman won with 53 percent of the vote over challenger Ben Stanley.

There are no other candidates in the race, meaning Buhman will face no challenger in November's general election.

Buhman has served as the county's top prosecutor since he was elected in 2006. His office is in the middle of several high-profile cases this year.

Stanley is a Pleasant Grove city councilman and works as an attorney at a firm that caters to technology companies.
