A primary election will be held Saturday for four candidates vying for the position of the Crow Tribe's vice chairman. The election will whittle the field to two candidates who will face each other in the June 20 general election. Those running in the primary are Darrin Old Coyote, vice secretary of the tribe; Newton "JR" Old Crow, who works in the tribe's education Department; Calvin "Coolidge" Jefferson Jr., contract representative for the Indian Health Service; and John Dale Dust.
