According to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal there will likely be five candidates in the Sept. 9 special election to fill Sen Robert Duncan's remaining term in Senate District 28. As expected CPA and TSCPA member Rep. Charles Perry and former Texas Tech Vice-chancellor Jodey Arrington are in the race along with former Rep. Delwin Jones, former Sweetwater mayor Greg Wortham and Wolfforth resident Epifanio “Eppie” Garza.
Early voting begins Aug. 25, 2014. If no candidate wins 50% of the vote a run-off will be necessary at a date determined by the governor.
TSCPA-PAC has endorsed Charles Perry, CPA, in the race.
