(Odessa)- Candidates for various contested races on the Republican Primary were in Odessa for a political forum.
Candidates for State Representative, U.S. Representative, Court of Appeals, Agriculture Commissioner and Comptroller answered questions and talked about their qualifications.
The event was put on the Ector County Republican Women.
The primaries are in March, and today's events gave those in attendance a chance to be better informed before going to the polls.
According to Judy Maikell Calloway, President of the Ector County Republican Women, “We feel Odessa is a prime area and the economy of Texas and that politicians need to be aware of our concerns or problems. We have a great voter force right here in Odessa-Midland.”
Other candidates who did not have an opponent were also on hand and were allowed to speak to the crowd.
The event was held at the Odessa Regional Medical Center auditorium.
