Smith County Sheriff candidates talk runoff
SMITH COUNTY - After months of campaigning the race continues. Larry Smith came out on top, followed by Chris Green, both of which will go on to a runoff.
While each candidate was hoping last nights vote would name a new Smith County Sheriff, that wasn't the case, and not surprising to the two candidates remaining.
Larry Smith says "With three candidates like that, with you know that's got quite a bit of the popularity and everything among different groups, it could have gone any way, I'm just glad to see the outcome obviously.
Chris Green tells KETK, "Hey we're happy to be here. We're happy to be in a runoff and of course we anticipated that with four candidates. It's unfortunate that a couple of them had to go but we're glad to be here."
