Colonel John Breland Endorses Overstreet

Wade Overstreet, a candidate for Potter County Court-at-Law #2, has earned an endorsement.

Overstreet announced this week that Colonel John Breland, USAR, has endorsed his bid for Potter County Court-at-Law #2. Representatives for the Overstreet campaign say that Breland served in the military with Overstreet between 2003-2004.

In making his endorsement, Breland said that Overstreet's experience shows that he is the right person to succeed the retiring Judge Pamela Cook Sirmon.

"Working in concert with the 101st Airborne Division's JAG office, Wade was the linchpin of our efforts to rebuild the justice system in the Nineveh Province," Colonel Breland said. "He demonstrated cool-headed bravery in a hostile combat environment, and he displayed unsurpassed professional skill in helping root out corruption and reinvent a judicial system from the ground up."

Overstreet is running in the March 6th Republican primary against Brown & Fortunato lawyer Matt Hand and Amarillo attorney Jerry Morales.
