The race includes four candidates, including a three-way race for the Republican Party nomination that will be decided by voters May 6.

In the primary race, Kim Kellogg-Martin, Dan LaRoche and Eric Stewart will vie for the party bid. The winner will face Democrat Bridget Hawkins in November to fill the seat that is being vacated by retiring Judge Michael L. Brady.

During this morning’s meeting hosted by the Logan County Area Chamber of Commerce, all four candidates spoke while only the three Republicans addressed Monday’s monthly meeting of the Republican Party.

During the chamber event, each candidate presented their judicial qualifications and the main issues they would like to address if elected.
