Oneida Tribe to elect new leader July 12

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin's Oneida Indian tribe will have a new leader come July.

Incumbent tribal chairman Edward Delgado was defeated over the weekend in a primary election.  

Two others were nominated for the chair's post -- Greg Matson with 343 votes, and Cristina Danforth with 324. They'll square off in a general election on July 12th.  

The primary had seven candidates for the top spot. Preliminary results showed Delgado with 147.

Earlier this year, Delgado won a tribal court battle against those who wanted him removed from office.

A tribal appellate court said there were not sufficient grounds for a removal.
