Following on the heels of an unexpected endorsement of Roach by "Independent Democrat" Rep. Chris Hurst, former Roach opponent Yvonne Ward and former 31st statehouse candidate Karen Willard, the 31st Legislative District Democrats have issued a press release of their own making it clear that the trio of candidates were speaking for themselves and not the party.
