It appears there might not be a general election runoff for the Surprise City Council.
In overnight primary election results released Tuesday night, Glendale fireman/paramedic Nick Haney may have earned enough votes to win a seat in District 1 outright.
In unofficial results, Haney has received 2,645 votes or 52% of the three-way vote. All he needs in the final totals is to earn more than 50% of the vote.
Businessman Raymond Grim pulled in second with 1,483 votes, or 29% of the vote.
Longtime Surprise resident Lew Guyn, meanwhile, finished last of the three with 914 votes, or 18% of the vote.
Grim is an insurance agent who has owned a business in Surprise for a couple of decades. The longtime resident of Surprise was making his second attempt at winning a seat on the council, first trying in 2018.
Guyn was a first-time candidate, who has lived in Surprise for almost 20 years. He is a systems optimization consultant for Swift Transportation.
Haney's win is still unofficial. Starting Wednesday, Maricopa County will post daily updates by 7 p.m. until all valid ballots are processed and counted.
However, it is unclear whether there are enough uncounted votes for Grim or Guyn that could bring Haney under the 50% threshold.
In Districts 5 and 6, incumbents Jack Hastings and Chris Judd earned reelection in uncontested races. Hastings earned 2,557 votes, while Judd collected 2,936.
