The Rutherford and Cannon County Bar Association has released results of a member poll ranking judicial candidates on the Republican primary ballot.

Conklin, General Sessions Division I; Barry Tidwell, General Sessions Division II; Toby Gilley, General Sessions Division III; Keith Siskin, Circuit Court Division III; Howard Wilson, chancery court; and Donna Scott Davenport, juvenile court. In the race for district attorney general, Charles G. Ward polled stronger than Jennings H. Jones, while in the public defender’s race, incumbent Gerald Melton fared better than Andy Brunelle. The association said it would conduct a similar poll for the general election in August.
