The father-son dynasty in Hay River is real as Rocky Simpson outpaced high-profile cabinet minister Wally Schumann to take Hay River South.

Simpson beat Schumann 350 votes to 322 with all seven polls reporting.

Rocky’s son, first-term incumbent R.J. Simpson, was acclaimed in Hay River North.

More to come.
