Wid Harris announced on Friday that he is withdrawing from the Adair County judge executive race, citing health issues as his reason for withdrawal.
“I found out a few days ago from my doctor that I’m pretty sick. I won’t be able to campaign due to my health and I’m withdrawing from the judge executive race,” said Harris.
Harris, a Democrat, was running in the May Primary against incumbent Michael Lee Stephens and newcomer Brandon “Bo” Biggs. Running for judge executive on the Republican ticket is Gale Cowan and Larry Russell Bryant. The primary election will be held May 22.
