There will be a Primary Race in the Republican Party for one of the top spots in the Carroll County Courthouse. Carroll Circuit Court Judge Donald Currie, a Republican, is being challenged for the position by Benjamin A. Diener, who filed to run for the same position as a Republican, according to the Indiana State Elections Division Web site. Diener listed his address with the State as 121 N. Indiana St. in Delphi. He is married to the former Abby Huffer, daughter of the late James Huffer.

Current Carroll County Commissioner Pat Clawson, a Republican, filed this week to run for a second term for District 2. In addition, Republicans Ben Thompson and William Hathaway filed to run for State Delegates At-Large.

Local Delphi resident Franklyn Voorhies has filed on the Republican ticket to run for Indiana State Representative. He will challenge Republican Don Lehe in the May Primary.

Those interested in running for a public office in the May Primary have until Friday, Feb. 10, at noon to declare their candidacy.
