"I'm grateful for the confidence of Johnson County Democrats to continue representing us on the general election ballot in November," Green told The News. "I'm looking forward to a positive issues-based campaign. Johnson County has lots of opportunity, but there is also an awful lot that needs to improve and I'm excited to discuss the best path forward."

"I am very excited for this election season," Bradshaw said. "I also think that the candidates give all the voters a great selection to pick from. I expect great things to come out of this election season."

Heather Hora of Riverside, a Republican running for state rep in District 92, topped primary balloting in Johnson County with 314 votes, or 79%.
