A Whirlwind Night of March Primaries

By  | 

Two of the four judges' races in Brazos County will go to runoffs after an interesting night of March primaries.

Incumbent 85th District Court Judge J.D. Langley will face attorney David Barron in a runoff. Langley garnered 38 percent of the vote, with Barron getting 34 percent in the four-person race.

In the four-person race for the vacant Brazos County Court at Law #1, assistant district attorney Jay Granberry got the most votes (37 percent), while attorney Amanda Matzke got 25 percent. They'll vie for the Republican nod in a runoff, the winner facing Democrat Allen Segal.

Incumbent judges Jim Locke (Brazos County Court at Law #2) and Steve Smith (361st District Court) retained their seats.

All three incumbent Brazos County Republican Justices of the Peace -- Charles Ellis, Margaret Meece and Ray Truelove -- were defeated by Michael McCleary, Vera Lara Hooge and Tommy Munoz respectively.
