Last day of campaigning for District 83 candidates

Posted:

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Tuesday was a busy last day of campaigning for the candidates of District 83.

Long time incumbent Delwin Jones and challenger Charles Perry say they both spent Tuesday talking with voters as they made their way to the polls.

This race turned heated when Perry accused Jones of supporting a bill that gives $33 million in state tuition money to illegal immigrants.

Jones, however, says that is a flat out lie, and that the bill allows students who have been living in Texas to pay in-state tuition.

After everything is said and done, both sides say they feel confident.

"I'm feeling good, feel like we are where we need to be and I trust the voters got enough information to make great decisions, but we're excited," says Perry.

"I've always said if enough people vote, you'll get the right answer and that's why I keep encouraging everybody be sure and go vote," says Jones.

In the March primary, a little more than 1,800 votes separated the pair, with Jones coming out on top.
