Republican Primary candidates for Congress, Texas Senate and Potter County Judge to appear on Public Television 

With the March 4th Texas Primary Elections fast approaching, Panhandle PBS will televise three forums in February in which candidates running in the Republican Primary will respond to questions from local print and broadcast media. There are no Democratic candidates in the high profile primary races for both the District 31 Texas Senate and Potter County Judge.  The winner of the 13th Congressional District Republican Primary will face a Democratic challenger in the November General Election.                                                                                                                                    

The first two forums are on Thursday, Feb. 13.  First, at 8 p.m., Panhandle PBS will present Republican Primary candidates seeking to represent the 13th Congressional District: Pam Barlow, Elaine Hays and Mac Thornberry. Then at 8:30 p.m., Republican Primary candidates for Texas State Senate District 31 will be featured: Mike Canon and Kel Seliger. 

Finally on Sunday, Feb. 16 at 4 p.m., a forum will air featuring Republican Primary candidates for Potter County Judge: Bill Bandy, Debra McCartt, Jeff Poindexter, William Sumerford and Nancy Turner.
