While Barry Johnson remains surprised that he vanquished two-term incumbent Abel Reyna by 20 percentage points, he is turning his attention to the general election for McLennan County district attorney and wondering if he will have one opponent or two.
Johnson, 61, easily defeated Reyna, 45, by 59.9 percent to 40.1 percent in the Republican primary Tuesday, lining him up for a November showdown with independent candidate Daniel Hare.
Seth Sutton entered the race as a Democrat but suspended his campaign last month, citing personal and professional responsibilities as reasons for the move. His name remained on Tuesdays Democratic ballot.
While he said he never says never and has not yet formally withdrawn his candidacy, Sutton, 43, said it is unlikely he will get back into the DAs race.
I doubt that I will revive my campaign, Sutton said Wednesday. The example I think of is a lion tamer. I dont believe seriously that I will ever become a lion tamer, but what would be the point of saying that I will never become a lion tamer?
Sutton stopped short of throwing his support behind either of the two remaining candidates and said he does not think he discouraged another Democrat from entering the field by his abbreviated candidacy.

Thanks for the post.
In Maine the candidate can resign after the primary and the party can choose a replacement. If the candidate were to resign before the primary leaving no candidate on the ballot, they cannot be replaced.

You don’t say.
It’s not the case that was botched.
The cases were just the cover-up of what shows every appearance of being a planned mass murder by law enforcement.
