BISHOP WATCHED THE ELECTION RESULTS WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY AS THE RESULTS ROLLED IN LAST WEEK THE SHERIFF EXPRESSED HIS APPRECIATION FOR ALL THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE SUPPORTED HIM AND SAID THE RESULTS JUST SHOW THAT IT'S TIME TO KEEP WORKING FOR THE PEOPLE OF TAYLOR COUNTY THE VERY FIRST THING AS IT'S ALWAYS BEEN OVER THE LAST EIGHT YEARS IS SALARIES WE'RE GOING TO KEEP WORKING TO GET THOSE UP AND BE MORE COMPETITIVE, AND THEN WE NEED TO, YOU KNOW, LOOK AT STILL OTHER EQUIPMENT AND CONTINUE TO EXPAND OUR TRAINING THAT WE'VE BEEN DOING OVER THE YEARS

IS AND THERE'S NOT A DEMOCRATIC CHALLENGER THIS WILL BE BISHOP'S THIRD TERM AS TAYLOR COUNTY SHERIFF AND WE ARE ALSO THERE AS THE FORMER SHERIFF LES BRUCE LEARNED HE CAME IN 2nd PLACE HERE'S HIS REACTION

NOTHING NOTHING CHANGES FOR ME I'M STILL THE SAME PERSON I WAS YESTERDAY TODAY AND WILL BE TOMORROW ABSOLUTELY AND MOVING ON TO THE RUNOFF IN TAYLOR COUNTY, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE RACE FOR THE OFFICE OF THE 104th DISTRICT COURT

IT WAS A CLOSE RACE WITH FLEE LOCAL ATTORNEYS RUNNING FOR THAT OFFICE JEFF PROBST LEADING THE RESULTS WITH 42% OF THE VOTE KEVIN WILLHELM TAKING 35% BLAKE NORVILLE IS THE CONTENDER WHO WON'T SEE THE NEXT ROUND HE HAD WITH 22% OF THE VOTE

THEY SAY THEY'RE READY FOR THE NEXT ROUND THIS RUNOFF WILL ALLOW ME TO FURTHER PROVE THAT AND I AM EXCITED FOR THE RUNOFF AND I THINK WE'LL HAVE GOOD RESULTS WE HAVE A TEAM NOW THAT'S IN PLACE TO GO AHEAD AND FINISH THIS STRONG IN MAY AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO BEING VICTORIOUS AT THAT TIME AND THAT RUNOFF ELECTION IS SCHEDULED FOR TUESDAY, MAY 26th NOW TO THE RACE FOR TWO SPOTS FOR TAYLOR COUNTY COMMISSIONERS COURT

THE OVERALL HEADLINE, TWO INCUMBENTS WILL KEEP THEIR JOBS RANDY WILLIAMS DEFEATED CHALLENGER MILES P OWEN FOR THE JOB OF COMMISSIONER OF PRECINCT 1 WILLIAMS RECEIVING 60% OF THE VOTE IN THE RACE AGAINST OWEN I CAN'T SAY NEARLY ENOUGH ON BEHALF OF MY FAMILY WHO HAVE WORKED SO HARD OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS AND A NUMBER OF FRIENDS WHO HAVE BEEN OUT THERE HELPING US PUT OUT SIGNS AND KNOCK ON DOORS

AND NOW, TO PRECINCT 3 WHERE COMMISSIONER BRAD BIRCHHAM ALSO WON HIS ELECTION AGAINST CHALLENGER JEFF DRESSEN BIRCHHAM WINNING THE RACE BY LESS THAN 10% THIS WILL BE BIRCHHAM'S SECOND TERM'S COMMISSIONER SINCE 2017 I'M GLAD IT'S OVER I HAVE WORKED — I'M GOING TO GET TO WORK IN THE MORNING AS HARD AS I CAN AND KEEP ON GOING

AND THIS WAS HIS FIRST TIME RUNNING FOR OFFICE HERE'S WHAT HE HAD TO SAY ABOUT THE RESULTS I WILL ALWAYS ADVOCATE FOR TAYLOR COUNTY WHETHER IT'S COUNTY COMMISSIONER OR WHETHER SOMEBODY NEEDS ADVISORS, SOMEBODY JUST WANTS TO TALK, NO MATTER WHAT, WIN OR LOSE, I WILL ALWAYS ADVOCATE FOR TAYLOR COUNTY AND IN THE RACE FOR JUSTICE OF THE PEACE, TAYLOR COUNTY PRECINCT 1 JUDGE MIKE KEEPS HIS SPOT WITH 78% OF THE VOTE AND JUST UNDER 10,000 VOTES HE WAS RUNNING AGAINST SHAWNA JOINER

SHE GOT 22% OF THE VOTE NEXT, THERE WERE SOME CONTESTED RACES FOR US CONGRESS BIG COUNTRY CONGRESSMAN JODEY ARRINGTON WINNING HIS RACE WITH 90% OF THE VOTE

HIS ONLY CONTENDER IN THE GOP RACE, VANCE BOYD OF ANSON ARRINGTON WILL FACE DEMOCRAT TOM WATSON IN THE NOVEMBER GENERAL ELECTION IS WELL, I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO HOPEFULLY ANOTHER TWO MORE YEARS IF THE GOOD PEOPLE OF WEST TEXAS KEEP ME HERE TO FIGHT ON THEIR BEHALF TO ADVANCE WEST TEXAS VALUES, TO PROTECT OUR FREEDOMS, TO BE VOICE FOR AG AND ENERGY AND RURAL AMERICA

WE'VE DONE A LOT OF — A LOT OF GREAT THINGS, NOT JUST FOR THE COUNTRY, BUT FOR THE BIG COUNTRY WITH RESPECT TO THE B-21 AND YOU KNOW AND NOW, TO DISTRICT 11, THAT INCLUDES BROWNWOOD AND ST ANGELA AND THE CONCHO VALLEY THIS IS THE SEAT BEING VACATED BIOICONGRESSMAN MIKE CONWAY AUSTIN FLUGER WINS THE RACE WITHOUT A RUNOFF

GREG, GUS TRAJO AND TIMOTHY GASAWAY TREJO TAKES 42% BECAUSE NEITHER CANDIDATE RECEIVED MORE THAN 50% OF THE VOTE IT GOES TO A RUNOFF IN MAY WE SPOKE TO BOTH CANDIDATES IN AMARILLO ULTIMATELY, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO WORK STARTING TO TO GET THINGS DONE AND WE CAN'T STAY ON THE LEFT AND RIGHT, OTHERWISE WE'RE NOT GOING TO GET ANYTHING ACCOMPLISHED

IF WE CAN GET ENOUGH DEFECTIONS FROM THE CENTER AND THE — WHAT YOU MIGHT CALL THE LIBERAL REPUBLICANS TO COME AND VOTE FOR US THEN WE CAN WIN THIS VERY EASILY AND NOW, TO THE GOP SIDE OF THE DISTRICT 13 CONGRESS THIS RACE ALSO GOING TO A RUNOFF HERE ARE THE RESULTS, JOSH — A McMURRAY UNIVERSITY GRADUATE TAKES THE LEAD IN THIS RACE WITH 39% RONNIE JACKSON WITH 20%

HERE'S WHAT THE CANDIDATES HAD TO SAY ABOUT GOING TO A RUNOFF ONE OF THE THINGS I WANT TO WORK ON IS MAKE SURE THAT WE CONTINUE TO HAVE SOMEONE THAT IS A STRONG VOICE ON BUILDING THE BORDER WALL AND ADVOCATING FOR IMMIGRATION REFORM, AND THEN ALSO TO PROTECT THE UNBORN AND MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE A CHAMPION THAT CAN HELP TO DEFEND THOSE WHO CAN'T 20 THEMSELVES IT'S A BRAND-NEW RACE AND I'VE GOT A BIG TEAM BEHIND ME AND OUR NETWORK IS GETTING BIGGER BY THE DAY AND I'M REALLY EXCITED ABOUT OUR AND LAST PUT NOT LEAST, WE GO NOW TO THE PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY, TRUMP WITHOUT A SURPRISE WINNING IN TEXAS ON THE GOP SIDE, SUPER TUESDAY CAUSING A LOT OF MOVEMENT FOR THE DEMS

HERE'S HOW THE RESULTS PLAYED OUT FOR TEXAS FORMER VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN OFFICIALLY WINS THE STATE, TRAILING SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS NUMBER 3 AND 4, MIKE BLOOMBERG AND SENATOR ELIZABETH WARREN, BOTH HAVE DROPPED OUT OF THE RACE ALL RIGHT, STILL TO COME ON "BIG COUNTRY POLITICS" WE HAVE BACK WITH US DR
