Field set in Collier judicial races

The field is set for the races for Collier County judge.

Qualifying for the three county seats closed at noon on Friday, according to the Collier County Supervisor of Elections Office.

Judge Vince Murphy secured his reelection Friday, as he is running unopposed for his Group 1 seat.

Judge Eugene Turner will face two opponents — Jim McGarity and Samuel Lopez — in the race for the Group 2 seat.

Judge Mike Carr will run against Stephen Smith for the Group 6 seat.

All judicial races are non-partisan and will appear on the Aug. 14 primary ballot.

In the Group 2 race, if no candidate receives more than 50 percent of the vote, the top two finishers will be on the November general election ballot.
