1960: E.T. Hensley retained his district judge seat while Nelson Worley was elected Curry County sheriff in a landslide.
Worley, who had been appointed sheriff during the winter, had more than twice the number of votes as his closest opponent, Val Baumgart.
Hensley narrowly edged Harold Gore among Curry County voters in the judgeâ€™s race, but Hensley â€śshellackedâ€ť Gore in Roosevelt County, the Clovis News-Journal reported.
Hensley and Worley both ran as Democrats. There were no Republicans on the primary ballot for either position.
