Excerpt from Claiborne Progress from Feb 15th Edition

The office doors of the Claiborne County Election Commission had more than its usual share of action last week as the Aug. 4 General Election and State Primary races officially began. Incumbents and hopefuls alike rushed the building with campaign petitions in hand. Office seekers will have until noon on April 7 to qualify for the election and until noon on April 14 should they decide to withdraw from the race.

There were several returned/verified or certified petitions by the close of day on Feb. 11. Included in this list are hopefuls Attorney Thomas Tabor and Assistant District Attorney General Graham E. Wilson – both who hope to replace retiring Criminal Court Judge E. Shayne Sexton.
