First day to file for candidacy

By Tiffany Pelt - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Thursday morning is the first day for candidates to file to be on the ballot in the March 2nd 2010 primaries. Judge Jim Dulin was one of many to make their election plans official Thursday. Dulin is running to be re-elected as justice of the peace in precinct two. "This is a job I dearly love. I love being a servant to the people. I have a servant's heart and I've served this court for 11 years so far," said Dulin.

Since Thursday morning, several other Republicans have filed. "We have probably filled about half the slots down the ballot, from U.S. State Representative all the way down through the JP courts," said Lubbock Republican Party Chairman Chris Winn.

On the Democrat side, only one candidate has filed but the local Democratic Party expects more to come.

Here is a breakdown of some of the major races and those who have already filed.

For the District 19 US House of Representatives, Republican Randy Neugebauer has filed for re-election and Democrat Andy Wilson is running against him by petition. This means Wilson is getting 500 signatures in place of paying the filing fee.

For State Representatives, Republican Delwin Jones in District 83 was the first this morning to file in Austin. Running against him Republican Charles Perry has also filed. Republican Zach Brady has not filed but did announce his candidacy. For District 84 Carl Isett is running but has not filed yet.

For the much debated Sheriff's race, Republicans Kelly Rowe, Ronnie O'Neal, and Don Carter have all officially filed. For the Democrats Jesse Pena is also running for sheriff and is the one Democrat who filed Thursday.

Candidates have another four weeks to file in order to be on the ballot in March. The last day to do so is January 4, 2010.

NewsChannel 11 will keep you updated on the candidates as they file for the election.

    Trump's demand puts further pressure on the Justice Department, which later Sunday asked its watchdog to expand an existing probe of FBI actions, as the White House combats the threat posed by special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation.
