Wilkins, Others Pull Petition for Memphis Offices

Memphis attorney Ricky E. Wilkins has pulled a qualifying petition to run in the August Democratic primary for the 9th Congressional District against incumbent Representative Steve Cohen. Wilkins has been considering the run for some time though polls show strong support for Cohen. In another local race, Memphis City Court Judge Tarik Sugarmon and Juvenile Court Chief Magistrate Dan Michael picked up qualifying petitions for juvenile court judge. They would face off to replace current judge Curtis Person Jr. who is not seeking re-election. The Memphis Daily News reports.
