LUBBOCK,TX- The pool has dropped from five to two candidates in the race of Justice of the Peace Precinct 4.
Republicans Ann-Marie Carruth and Gary Vaughn are the last two competitors in the race.
They will run against each other in a May 27th run-off election.
The seat was previously held by Judge Jean Anne Stratton for several years.

Brown came in third in tonight's race.
Other candidates included former Constable of Precinct 4, Brenda Willis, and Deputy Sheriff Debra Burton.
