Bob Carlton, a Republican candidate for Franklin County commissioner in District 3, has conceded the primary race to incumbent Commissioner Clyde Barker.

Final results of the race were not available Thursday from the county clerk’s office, Franklin County Finance Manager Vickie Braley said.

However, Carlton said in a phone interview he has conceded the race.

Lois Barker, Clyde Barker’s wife, said her husband won the primary but wanted to postpone commenting until official results were available.

Barker currently does not face an opponent in the November election.

District 3 of Franklin County includes Avon, Carrabassett Valley, Coplin Plantation, Dallas Plantation, Eustis, Industry, Kingfield, New Vineyard, Phillips, Rangeley Plantation, Rangeley, Sandy River Plantation, Strong, Weld and the unorganized territories of East Central Franklin, North Franklin, South Franklin, West Central Franklin and Wyman.
