Due to no opposition from Democrats this fall, two contested Grimes County races were decided in this month’s Primary voting.
County Voter Registrar Rebecca Duff reports that, for County Judge, Joe Fauth came away with 54.37% of the vote, so he will be on the ballot this November by himself, and Precinct Two Commissioner David Dobyanski won with 60.04% of the vote. Duff adds that, although the GOP will be replacing his name on the November ballot, the late Precinct Four Commissioner Gary Husfeld still received 439 votes.
Because Grimes is part of State District 13, duff says there’ll be one run-off before November, for State Representative, due, in part, to the wishes of local voters.
And also because of a lack of opposition candidates, Duff tells Navasota News Andrea Bender will begin her first full term as District Attorney next year. And she’s not the only one.
Duff predicts that’s going to change, however, as the increase in the number of Democrat voters this week mirrors the recent resurgence of the Grimes County Democrat Party.
