Lisa Zavogiannis became the first district attorney to win a second term of office in the history of the 31st Judicial District, edging independent candidate Tim Pirtle, who carried Warren County but lost the election thanks to the incumbent’s strong showing in Van Buren County.Pirtle carried Warren County by a scant seven votes, besting Zavogiannis by a count of 4,074 to 4,067. However, it was not close in Van Buren County, which makes up the 31st Judicial District along with Warren County. Zavogiannis carried Van Buren by a vote of 1,091 to 759.The win comes after a heavily spent and hotly contested campaign.
