CLARK COUNTY —
The campaign of Clark County Sheriff candidate Mac Spainhour has reported collecting more than the 636 signatures required for Spainhour to run for the office as an independent candidate in November.
Spainhour was not listed in the candidate filings printed in the News and Tribune on Feb. 8 because only Democrats and Republicans run in the primary elections scheduled for May 6.
Clark County Independents, and other minor political parties, run only in the November general election.
Spainhour and others not running in the two major parties have until June 30 to file for office.
June 30 also marks the deadline that Republican and Democrat party leaders can appoint a member of their parties to run in the general election, if that elected office is void of a member of the party.
