The Democrats almost declared war on each other over whether or not the person to run against Tom Garrett for the 5th District will be decided by convention or by primary. The committee that decides such things had originally decided on a primary, but with only days left to make it official, they’ve decided to go with a convention instead. Leslie Cockburn, R.D. Huffstetler, Ben Cullop and Andrew Sneathern are all running for the Democratic nomination. None of them, including the incumbent, Tom Garrett, are from this region.
