GOP hopefuls in showdown
Voter interest is higher than normal for Tuesday's Republican Party primary election in Jennings County.

"When you have that many contested races, it brings out the voters for a primary," said Jennings County Clerk Mary Kilgore. "I'm expecting a big turnout for the Republican primary."

The GOP has nine contested races on the ballot in most of Jennings County with five of them involving county offices. In contrast, on the Demo­cratic side there are only two races with more than one candidate - and both of those are at the federal level.

Counting the three Jennings County at-large seats, six Republican incumbents are being challenged by others of their same party. Dave Turner, the county's GOP chair, dismisses the notion that the high number suggests party infighting or discord. Rather, he says, the abundance of candidates is a sign of the party's strength.
