State Sen. Harri Anne Smith in Senate District 29 and Chip McCallum in House Distrct 47 appear to be preparing to run as independents in their respective races after the state GOP decided that neither could run as Republicans.
In the November election, the incumbent Smith would face Democrat Jennifer Adams and the winner of the Republican primary between George Flowers and Nathan Mathis.
Chip McCallum would face Republican incumbent Jack Williams in the November election. No Democrat qualified for the race.
Thanks to reader P for McCallum news.
