Smith County, Texas (KETK) — Major General John Furlow says he's ready to go to court.
Furlow is running against current Smith County Judge Joel Baker, but he's also in the middle of a lawsuit with the state.
The lawsuit claims Furlow was getting paid twice for the same job during his military service.
Furlow responded to the suit saying he was not "double dipping," and plans to fight this to the end.
KETK's Neal Barton will be acting as the moderator for Friday afternoon's debate between Baker and Furlow.
