Dist. 83 candidate says allegations against him are exaggerated

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A candidate in the runoff for the State District 83 says the allegations against him are exaggerated.

Charles Perry is challenging incumbent Delwin Jones in the Republican Primary.

A local attorney filed an ethics complaint against Perry on Tuesday, saying that he accepted illegal campaign contributions and withheld financial information.

Perry says only one of his contributions is a problem. It was a corporate donation, which is forbidden in Texas. Perry says the money has already been returned.

"I'm gonna stay on task, stay on message," says Perry. "These are distractions that most candidates face and it's one that I'm not going to let bother me. I'm going to stay true to what I'm doing and where my grass roots support base is; and that is on message and solution oriented."

NewsChannel 11 will bring you more of Perry's response tonight on the news at 6.
