GEORGETOWN, Del.- Challenger Robert B. Arlett has ousted incumbent candidate Vance Phillips in the Sussex County Council District 5 GOP primary race.

With all 14 precincts reporting for the district Tuesday night, Arlett garnered 55 percent of the vote compared to Phillips' 45 percent.

Arlett's win advances him to a November contents against Democratic challenger Robert C. Wheatley, who took 60 percent of the vote compared to opponent Bradley S. Connor's 40 percent.

Phillips has held the position for 16 years but recently has had to deal with personal issues, including a civil lawsuit filed by a former female intern accusing him of sexual wrongdoing. He denies the allegations.
