Primary filing moving slow

Published

on

With less than a week left for the March 5, 2024 party primaries there are virtually no contested county races with the state garnering the most candidates.
Filing for the Republican and Democratic Party primaries ends on Dec. 11. Candidate prospects can file with the county party chairman for the local races and with the state party for the national and state races.
Montague County Republican Party Chairman Mark Neese said as of Monday he has received no new candidates since the Nov. 16 sign-up night. There is no county Democratic Party chairperson and those who wish to run on that ticket may file with the state party.

The District 30 State Senate seat is garnering a lot of attention after Drew Springer, R-Muenster, announced he would retire to return to private business taking over his father’s financial management firm in Muenster. District 4 Congressman Pat Fallon, R-Sherman, has said he plans to run for the District 30 seat, but he is not yet listed on the Republican Party filing list or the Secretary of State’s site. Fallon served in the seat for two years before Springer leaving the office to run for Congress.
Other candidates for the senate seat that includes Montague County are Brent Hagenbuch, Denton County Republican Party chair, Dr. Carrie deMoor, a Frisco physician and Cody Clark, Krugerville, a former police officer and business owner.

Trish Coleman Byers, 97th district judge, has filed for her first full term as judge after being appointed mid-summer after the retirement of Judge Jack McGaughey.
Casey Hall, 97th district attorney, said she plans to run and has submitted her paperwork to the state party, but it has not appeared on the party or SOS website filing page as of Monday.
Other county races open in the 2024 primaries are county attorney, sheriff, precincts one and three commissioners, two constables and county tax assessor. All the incumbents have filed.
Precinct One Commissioner Roy Darden has filedand is facing a challenge from Charles King, which is the only contested race so far in the county.
The Archer County race for county attorney has reportedly gained a local connection. Leslie Hash, chairman of the Archer County Republican Party, confirmed Tuesday Assistant District Attorney Judy Price Hamilton Rosenberger filed as a Republican candidate for Archer County attorney.
