There will be a Republican primary in May for Christian County Magistrate in District Three, after another person filed to seek the position Wednesday.
According to an update from the Christian County Clerk’s Office, George Barnett filed to run as a Republican. He will face Robert Webb in the May primary, where the victor would likely go on to face incumbent Democrat Mark Cansler in the general election.
Barnett made an unsuccessful bid for the seat in 2014 against Cansler. **
