Bill Gravell Republican Nominee for Williamson County Judge

The 2018 Republican primary is finally in our rear-view mirror, and we are pleased to report the results of race results available at post time. For the County’s top race, Judge Bill Gravell is one step closer to changing his job, although not his honorable title. With 116 precincts reporting, he is the winner with 52.39%.

After many months of outspoken opposition, including personal attacks on not just the candidate but also his supporters and staff, Judge Gravell said, “After all the negative campaigning that we have been through and all the damage done to the Republican Party by the public infighting, I just have one thing to say; it’s time to get together and whoop some Democrats.” A large and satisfied crowd joined the “Dancing Judge” for a celebration at his watch party at Mesquite Creek Outfitters in the Georgetown Square. He spoke about the future of Williamson County and shared the humility he has felt throughout the process. “I met a woman today in Sun City who needed help getting to the polls and after we helped her vote, she said she was happy to cross ‘meet Bill Gravell’ off her bucket list. I never imagined a time in my life that I would be part of a person’s bucket list, but I promise to remain faithful to my Lord and be worthy of that honor.”

Poll results indicate a marked increase in the number of Democratic voters and although there has not been a Democrat elected to state office since 1994, it appears there is momentum statewide for contested races and Republicans in Williamson County will need to move past the primary quickly and come back together before November 6.
