Cass County Sheriff Jesse Jahner cites campaign exhaustion while thanking supporters for convincing election night win

(Fargo, ND) -- Cass County Sheriff Jesse Jahner is thanking his supporters after his convincing win in Tuesday's election. He says the campaign was long and demanding. 

"Yeah we're pretty exhausted. So I announced back on right around January 4th January 5th that I was seeking re-election and so by the time that last night came around, you know it's 10 months of campaigning and so certainly, like I said we're exhausted. When I say we, my wife, myself and our committee," said Jahner. 

Jahner captured nearly 80 percent of the vote while his challenger Deputy Matthew King received just under 20 percent. Jahner said the campaign gave him a chance to interact with the community and get feedback on how his agency was performing. 

"I want to thank for our citizens for the support that they've given me and the Cass County Sheriff's Office over the past three-and-a-half-years and I'm certainly looking forward to serving them again in the next four," said Jahner.
