GREENFIELD — The Republican Party of Adair County special nominating convention scheduled for the evening of June 30 will now also nominate a candidate for Adair County attorney. The convention had previously been called to nominate a candidate for Adair County sheriff.

The convention will be held in the meeting room at Greenfield City Hall, and begin at 6:30 p.m., with credentialing beginning at 6 p.m. The only candidate currently seeking the county attorney nomination is Clint Hight of Greenfield. The county sheriff nomination is being sought by Deputy Jeff Vandewater.

“I’m very pleased to have a full ballot of candidates going into the summer campaign season,” said Adair County GOP Chairman Ryan Frederick. “The rule of law is a foundational principle of our republic; and one which the Republican Party steadfastly – and it seems exclusively – defends. The citizens of Adair County deserve to be represented in court by someone who shares a commitment to that principle, a claim the Democratic Party cannot make.

Frederick added, “We have a solid lineup of public servants up and down our ticket this year, beginning with Joni Ernst and David Young on the national level, running through Terry Branstad, Paul Pate, Bill Northey, Mary Mosiman, Sam Clovis and Clel Baudler on the state level, and concluding with what I see as the strongest group of local candidates in recent memory. The activists in our local party are energized and ready to get to work electing this stunning lineup of talent in November’s election.”
