In the increasingly tense GOP race for Williamson County District Attorney, Jana Duty, the current WilCo county attorney who is challenging incumbent D.A. John Bradley, has picked up the lion's share of endorsements, including of the area's law enforcement organizations. In addition to the endorsement of the WilCo and Travis County sheriffs' associations, Duty last week racked up nods from both the Austin Police Association, and the statewide officers' union, the Combined Law Enforcement Associations of Texas. So far, only the Round Rock Police Officers Association has thrown its support behind Bradley's re-election bid.
