Former State Rep. Delwin Jones announced his candidacy for the Senate District 28 special election contest. That makes five announced candidates and the filing deadline is still three days away. Jones joins CPA and TSCPA member Rep. Charles Perry (who defeated Jones to gain his current House seat), former Texas Tech chancellor Jodey Arrington, former Sweetwater mayor Greg Wortham and Wolfforth resident Epifano Garza in the race to replace Sen. Duncan. Duncan resigned the seat to become the Texas Tech chancellor. Pundits are speculating there will be a run-off with Perry and Arrington the early favorites to get a second chance.
