LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – The runoff race is on. On April 13th voters will know whether or not District 83 Representative Delwin Jones goes back to Austin and which new face will challenge a democratic candidate for Carl Isett's seat in District 84. 

"I was not surprised, the two candidates working hard like they did are difficult to overcome," says Rep. Delwin Jones.

Jones beat Charles Perry and Zach Brady, but did not receive enough votes to avoid a runoff. "I'm going to emphasize my record of achievement against the other candidate's promises on what to do," adds Jones.

Perry spent less money than both Brady and Jones and says his  grassroots campaign is ready for the run off. "It feels good. I knew we would be in a runoff with Delwin. I feel good and know what we are going to be doing a lot of the same getting out and meeting more people," says Perry. 

Whoever wins the runoff election will likely be the state representative because there is not a democrat or a libertarian listed to run in November.

As the results came in Tuesday night, it became clear there would be a runoff for outgoing State Rep. Carl Isett's seat between Mark Griffin and John Frullo.

Griffin, a former Texas Tech Regent and former LISD board member, says he will continue to expand his voter support. "I think we are going to continue our strong message of conservative effective leadership. We'll talk about some of the same issues we did in the first primary because I don't think those have changed, education, protecting business and water," says Griffin.

Businessman John Frullo says his business background will help with the budget deficit in Austin. He was the underdog going into the primary election says he is ready for round two. "We made a lot of progress and I'm excited. We whittled a 30 point deficit down to a very small one so we are excited. Our plans are to keep building momentum and we are right on schedule where we thought we would be," says Frullo.

The winner will face Democrat Carol Morgan.

If you did not vote in the primary, you can still participate in the runoff. However, if you cast a ballot in the Democratic primary you cannot switch parties and vote in the April 13th runoff election.

Early voting starts April 5th and runs through April 9th. You can vote at United Supermarkets, Texas Tech Recreation Center, or the Slaton ISD Administration building. Election day voting locations have not been approved by the Lubbock County Commissioners, they will do that Monday.

Thursday afternoon, candidates will have access to precinct reports from the County Election's Office. These reports will paint a picture, precinct by precinct, the number of people who cast ballots on Election Day and during early voting for each candidate.

The runoff elections are funded by the political parties.
