Durrett Congratulations on Hopson On State Representative Race

Republican State Representative Candidate for District 11, Larry Durrett spent the evening at his home in Jacksonville with family and friends Tuesday night. Durrett waited patiently until the final results came in.  It was a slow process as Cherokee County had reported problems with their voting machines.  In the end, Durrett lost by about 1700 votes. 

"I certainly congratulate Representative Hopson," said Larry Durrett. "He is a very good competitor, good campaigner and I think based on these good healthy campaigns everybody probably becomes a better legislature for that, and if we accomplished that then we accomplished something."   Durrett says he's not sure what he's going to do next.  He does not believe, however, the negative campaign ads between him and Hopson played a factor in him losing.
