Angelina Dems Recruit Candidate for Sheriff

The Lufkin News reports the Angelina County Democratic Party has recruited a candidate to run for County Sheriff in November.

Democratic Party Chairman Jim Wark says the party’s executive committee has chosen former Zavalla Police Officer Thomas Stewart to face Republican nominee Greg Sanches in November.

This situation came about when Wark was forced to take the winners of the Democratic Primary races for Sheriff and a County Constable position off the November ballot.

It was revealed that Sheriff candidate Jim Hodges and Constable candidate William Wade had voted in the Republican Primary, which is a violation of the Texas Election Code.

The code says voters are free to vote in the primary of their choice, but primary candidates must vote in their own party’s primary.

Local Democrats have found another candidate for Sheriff, but they couldn’t find a new Constable candidate.  This leaves the Republican candidate unopposed in November.
