CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Incumbents were faring well in the townships surrounding Chambersburg, with eight of the municipalities' 11 precincts posting primary election results Tuesday by 10:50 p.m.

Republicans from those precincts chose to send Charles D. "Dave" Jamison, from Greene Township, and Randall E. Negley, from Hamilton Township, to November's general election, supporting the men's quest for re-election to six-year terms.

Preliminary results indicated that GOP voters also had selected Larry Horn, from Letterkenny Township, as its representative on ballots there this November.

Jamison, who ran against Keith W. Weller, had 470 votes cast in his favor in the three Greene Township precincts that reported. Weller posted 306 votes.


Negley had received 630 votes from the GOP compared to challenger Barry Sheeder's 200 votes in Hamilton Township's three precincts, according to complete, but unofficial results in that municipality.

Horn, with 168 votes, led over Lance G. Norton's 71 votes from the 876 registered Republicans in Letterkenny Township.

No candidates had filed for the Democratic nomination in Greene, Hamilton and Letterkenny townships. The Democrats had the option of sending a write-in candidate to the general election, but ballots with write-in votes won't be counted until later this week.
