Tea Party Hosts Runoff Candidate Forum

The Amarillo Tea Party hosted its runoff candidates forum last night for the three contested Republican primary judicial races in Potter County.

On Tuesday, candidates for several offices gathered for the forum. Danny South, chairman of the Amarillo Tea Party, said that all candidates were in attendance, with the exceptions of Wade Overstreet, candidate for Potter County Court at Law #2, and Pamela Cook Sirmon, candidate for 320th District Judge. Both Overstreet and Sirmon had conflicts, according to South.

All of the attending candidates highlighted their experiences and qualifications as they compete for voter recognition ahead of the May 22nd Republican primary runoff.

Voters will decide each race on May 22nd. For more information, please visit
