The candidates are Republican John Schroder and Democrat Derrick Edwards.
Schroder, who is white, lives in Covington. He is a veteran, small businessman, real estate agent, a developer, and a former state legislator. He is very serious about wanting this position.
He has spent nearly one million dollars as of October 29 – $910,105 to be exact. It is likely that his total expenditures will exceed one million dollars when all is said and done.
