The Common Sense Tea Party Patriots Thursday met and endorsed candidates standing for election on Nov. 2.

Locally, they endorsed:

• For Circuit Court Judge, Place #2:  Ashley McKathan (unopposed)

• District Attorney, 22nd Judicial District: Walt Merrell

• District Court Judge – Covington County:  Frank McGuire (unopposed)
