  • Two have candidates withdrawn from the race in the May primary election.

    Bobby Andriot withdrew from the magisterial race in District 3, leaving incumbent magistrate Allen Ruble unchallenged until November.

  • Harold Thomas Bryant is a democratic candidate for magistrate for the 7th District.

    Bryant, who resides on Olive Branch Road with his wife, Judith, is a retired Louisville factory worker, who still does some farming.
