Runoff election needed for Brazos Co. DA race

Wednesday, May 30, 2012 - 4:36pm

BRAZOS COUNTY -- Voters in Brazos County have to head back to the polls at the end of July for a run-off election because Jarvis Parsons narrowly missed winning the Brazos County district attorney race by a few hundred votes last night.

Parsons had 49-percent of the vote and since that is not the majority, meaning more than 50-percent, he will now be heading into a run-off vote with David Hilburn, who had 22-percent of the vote.

Both are Republicans.

The run-off election is set for July 31st and whoever wins is guaranteed the job because no Democrat is running.
