It’s early, but in what is Livingston County’s hottest primary race, former Livingston County Circuit Court Judge David Reader is off to a roaring start in his quest to unseat Livingston County Prosecutor William Vailliencourt.
At about 9:15 p.m., Reader had a huge lead, with nearly 71 percent of the 15,055 votes cast.
Reader had out-raised Vailliencourt, reporting a total of $105,371 raised, including $65,000 of his own money. Vailliencourt raised just $20,430.
The winner takes on Democrat Ragan Lake in the fall.
