LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Douglas Freitag joined the race for 140th State District judge on Wednesday.
Freitag is joining the race for the post that Jim Bob Darnell currently holds. He says those he holds near and dear encouraged him to run.
"Plain and simple, I've been encouraged by my family to do it. After a lot of prayer and a lot of long conversations with my wife we felt like this is what God was calling me to do at this point, and where I was supposed to be now," Freitag said.
Freitag joins Ryan Gentry, Tom Brummett and Robert Sullivan in the race.
