McCarville seeks County Attorney Republican nomination

Joseph McCarville, of Fort Dodge, will seek the Republican nomination for the position of Webster County attorney.

McCarville was defeated by Jennifer Benson in his bid for the Democratic nomination at a reconvened Democratic convention July 1.

McCarville has since switched his affiliation from Democrat to Republican, and approached the Webster County Republicans about the position, said Republican Party Chair Jamie Johnson.

The Republicans will hold a nominating convention at 7 p.m. July 31 at the local Republican Party headquarters, 900 Central Ave.
