Dueling Political Party Conventions Held At Sherman Courthouse

Posted:

SHERMAN, TX -- The Grayson County Courthouse in Sherman is usually quiet on Saturdays, but it wasn't this weekend.

The place was bustling for most of the day as the county's Republican and Democratic parties held dueling conventions on either side of the building.

Politicians and party chairs were among those in attendance. Organizers say voters from different precincts around the county come together every two years to elect county delegates.

Then, they choose delegates to the upcoming party conventions of both Republicans and Democrats. 

They also vote on resolutions to send to those conventions.
