Leesburg-- Lee County has become a Republican stronghold in Southwest Georgia--all the local races will be determined in next week's Republican primary.

All three County Commission races will be decided in the primary. In the Senate Seat 13 race, candidates Carden Summers and Joseph Carter are battling it out for the Republican nod.

Tuesday night, candidates in all the major races will debate the issues at a special political forum at Lee County High School. Chamber President Brad Lofton says, "This primary will decide many of the elected officials seat for the upcoming year, so this debate is very significant in that regard.

Brad Lofton and James Sizemore, a local attorney, will moderate the debates, that begin at 7:00 pm.

Most of the candidates are expected, including the state house district 152 candidates, incumbent Republican Ed Rynders and Democrat Earleen Sizemore, although that contest won't be decided until November.

One Lee County man wanting to be Sheriff, who isn't officially on the ballot yet, plans to participate in the debate Tuesday night.

But, Jimmy Kerfoot is one step closer to qualifying as an Independent. Kerfoot turned in 86 pages of signatures. He needs 547 legitimate signatures to get on the November ballot as an Independent.

The Board of Elections is in the process of verifying those signatures.

The Lee County businessman was disqualified from the Republican ticket because he didn't turn in all the necessary paperwork on time.

Kerfoot is seeking to unseat long-time Sheriff Harold Breeden.
