Crosby County political parties will have to wait a little bit longer before finding a possible replacement for Sheriff David Barker. Barker was indicted for assault and official oppression in March.

Seven candidates filed to run for Crosby County sheriff, but no one received the required %50 +1 needed to win in the party primary elections.

Now candidates from both parties will face off again in a runoff election.

Robert Walters (R) will face off against James Isbell (R), and Ethan Villanueva (D) will run against Henry Benites (D).

Hockley County will also need a July 31 runoff election.

According to the Hockley County Clerk, there will be a run-off between Paul Scarborough and RC Cheek.The winner of that election will face David Kinney in the November general election.

David Kinney is the Libertarian Candidate for Hockley County Sheriff.
