By  | 

LAMAR COUNTY, TX-- Republican Candidates addressed Lamar County citizens Thursday night, presenting their platforms and why residents should vote for them.

Each of the 21 candidates, who attended, were given two minutes to introduce themselves and their qualifications. Candidates with opponents also answered two questions each.

Republican Chairman John Kruntorad says, they have a record number of republican candidates running in the March primary.

""It was only ten years ago that we had no Republican candidates in the primary," said Kruntorad. "As a matter of fact six years ago Lamar County elected their first Republicans since the civil war."

The primary election is March 4th.
