Kilgore, TX (Longview News-Journal) — One of two candidates challenging incumbent Kilgore mayor Ronnie Spradlin for his post announced today he was pulling out of the race.
The Rev. Don Gramm said he knows it is too late to remove his name from the May 11 ballot. He added he participated in early voting today and had cast a ballot for challenger Marc Mathison.
