There will be a contested race for Judge-Executive in Todd County next year.
Former Judge-Executive Kent Knight of Elkton filed to run as a Democrat Wednesday and is currently unopposed in the primary. Incumbent Republican Judge-Executive Daryl Greenfield has already committed to run again and at least one more Democrat has told supporters he will be on the ballot.
Knight was elected Judge-Executive as a Republican in 2002 and lost in the 2006 Deomcratic Primary to Arthur Green after switching parties. He has unsuccessfully run for State Representative and Judge-Executive since his 2006 loss.
