The Hopkins County Republican Party has a new chairman to help lead the party faithful through the coming political journeys.
The Executive Committee of the Hopkins County Republican Party elected Erwin Cain, a former nominee for state district judge, as the local party’s new chairman during its regular monthly meeting in February.
The committee and other local party members, meeting at the ag workers building in Buford Park, heard outgoing chairman Chris Brown speak briefly about his three years at the helm of the organization, then elected Cain by acclamation.
Cain, an attorney who lives in the Como area, was the Republican Party’s nominee in the November General Election for 62nd Judicial District Judge. He won in three of the district’s counties — Hopkins, Delta and Rains — but lost by an even larger margin in Lamar County, the home of his opponent, incumbent Judge Scott McDowell.
Cain praised the work done by Brown, a native of Sulphur Springs who serves on the City Council. Cain said that Brown succeeded in reorganizing the local party and preparing it for great success in the future.
The new county chairman went on to say that support for the Republican platform and for Republican candidates is growing throughout the region because people are realizing that “true conservative values have always been the bedrock foundation of this state and nation and are the bulwark against bigger and more meddling government.” Cain emphasized “the importance of lower taxes, more opportunity, greater personal liberty and responsibility,” and a “return to the conservative social, fiscal, domestic and foreign policies that have made Americans’ freedoms the envy of the world.”
