Jones and Gibson appear headed to a rematch in November


San Luis Obispo County District 2 Supervisor Bruce Gibson appears to be headed to a rematch with Dr. Bruce Jones in the Nov. 8 midterm election, according to the latest count from the SLO County Clerk-Recorders office.

In order to win during the primary election, a candidate is required to receive 50% of the votes plus one. As the late ballots are tallied, Gibson continues to fall further below 51%,
