So, there’s a rumor that Knox County Criminal Court Clerk candidate and attorney Steve Williams will drop out of the race, especially after local prosecutor Jason Hunnicutt jumped in at the last minute.
Williams this afternoon told me that it’s not true and he’s in it to win.
He did, however, joke that he wished Hunnicutt had waited 45 minutes to turn
in his petition. (He turned it in about 30 minutes before deadline.)
The race, which will be settled in the May Republican primary, will now
feature Commissioner Mike Hammond, Williams and Hunnicutt. (Incumbent Joy McCroskey has pulled out.)
By the way, the deadline to drop out and not have your name on the ballot is
noon Feb. 27.
