Judge rejects objection to Williamson County State's Attorney's candidacy
Democrat Marcy Cascio-Hale is running for the position left vacant when Brandon Zanotti resigned
A Williamson County judge has tossed out an objection to Democrat Marcy Cascio-Hale's candidacy.
County Republicans objected to Cascio-Hale's placement on the ballot, questioning both her nominating papers, and the way Democrats selected her. Initially, the county's Election Board agreed on one count, but denied the other. Cascio-Hale appealed, and the case was heard in circuit court this week.
Cascio-Hale was appointed to the State's Attorney post after Brandon Zanotti resigned earlier this year. A special election was triggered by his resignation, and she'll face Republican Ted Hampson in November.
