Ronda’s Picks – Primary 2018

PRIMARY-ELECTIONS Around this time every election I have people reach out and ask me how to vote since I am active politically. I consider many resources when I choose the candidates I support. Some candidates are easier to choose than others and some I must rely on those that have been in this fight longer than I, to give me direction. Remember, this is only the primary election, in many of these races there will be run-off elections in August and the general election in November. On Tuesday we begin narrowing the field for the general election in November. After careful consideration I feel comfortable recommending the following candidates in the 2018 primary election held June 26th.
