Lee County goes Republican

Lee County - If you want to help choose the next Sheriff of Lee County... Or any local office... You're going to have to vote republican.

In next month's primary, no one running for a county office is running as a Democrat. As recently as 2000, the majority of politicians ran as Democrats. But they've switched parties over the last few years and now all the candidates in county races, including the clerk of courts, sheriff, tax commissioner, and county commissioners are running as Republicans.  Veronica Johnson said, "We do not have any local races on the democratic ballot There are still very important races on that ballot and we certainly encourage people to choose the party of their choice, but if you are interested in your local races, you may want to study the ballots and decide what party you really want to vote for."
