Most incumbent row office holders in Carbon County had no competition in yesterday's Primary Election in their bid for re-election.
One who did was Coroner Bruce Nalesnik of Nesquehoning, a Democrat, who was challenged by Jim Thorpe funeral director David Stianche.
Nalesnik emerged the winner with nearly 60 percent of the votes, winning by a margin of 3,432 to 2,355.
He must now face Republican Renny Shoop of Jim Thorpe, a veterinarian, in the November general election.
Shoop was unopposed on his side of the ballot and was given 2,896 complementary votes.
