Fewer than 1,000 cast early vote
Just 808 Republicans and 33 Democrats decided to take advantage of early voting July 23-27, according to Rose Pruski in the Wilson County Elections Office. This was ahead of the July 31 Primary runoff.
Locally, the race for the Republican nominee for Wilson County Commissioner Pct. 3 pitted Ricky Morales against Larry Bratten. Morales has held the position since the 2011 death of longtime Republican Commissioner Bobby Lynn.
Republican outcomes were set to be determined in runoff races that included:
•U.S. Senate: David Dewhurst and Ted Cruz
•U.S. Rep., District 15: Eddie Zamora and Dale Brueggemann
•Railroad Commissioner: Christi Craddick and Warren Chisum
•Railroad Commissioner: Barry Smitherman and Greg Parker
•Justice, Supreme Court Place 4: David Medina and John Devine.
Among the Democrats, only the race for U.S. Senate -- in which Paul Sadler faced Grady Yarbrough -- was to be decided in the runoff election.
Results of these races will be posted at www.wilsoncountynews.com, upon release by county election officials.
