Republicans took the two contested county office races Tuesday in Cole County.

Dan Green, Republican candidate for Cole County circuit judge defeated incumbent Democrat Paul Wilson by a vote of 16,191-11,706.

Wilson will serve until Jan. 1, when Green takes over.

Incumbent Republican Cole County Prosecutor Mark Richardson won re-election to office over Democrat Marshall Wilson.

Richardson got 17,999 votes, while Wilson received 10,003.

Wilson is still the Jefferson City municipal judge and filing is still open in that race.

The majority of the county office races were uncontested.
