Amid the campaigning, several candidates made appearances in, or at the Chisholm Trail Roundup Grand Parade on Saturday, taking the opportunity to r
each a mass audience with a relative amount of ease.
Most candidates have also submitted their final campaign finance reports, which were due to election coordinators on Friday, June 10.

In District 3, both candidates, incumbent Paul Hardwick and Clint Mohle, claim to have collected only minimal contributions.
Hardwick claimed $272 in local advertising expense, while Mohle spent $303.50.
Neither incumbent Raymond Gonzales nor his opponent in the District 1 race, Timoteo “Tim” Juarez, Jr. had filed a report.
