So far for the Primary Election, Republicans are dominating the ballot.
According to Grant County’s Democratic Party Chair Terry Stodghill it “remains to be seen” if more county democrats will choose to run for office.
All those who have filed for judicial, county and precinct committeemen seats are Republicans.
Stodghill said that he’s found it difficult to get local Democrats to run for these seats. He added that he’d love to see Democratic candidates run for a county-council member-at-large seat or for the Grant County commissioner’s seat.
