Reid McCain, Republican, Files for Candidacy for Criminal District Attorney in Harrison County, Texas

(Marshall, TX) –Republican Reid McCain, Gregg County Assistant District Attorney and veteran of the Marshall Police Department, has filed his candidacy today for Harrison County Criminal District Attorney in the Republican Primary on March 6, 2018.

Advocating for a fair, firm and well-respected prosecutor’s office, McCain is seeking the county seat as a representative of the countless victims of crime in Harrison County. With McCain’s background, he is uniquely qualified to provide a balance between prosecution and law enforcement’s efforts, so that victims are well-represented and protected with justice served in criminal prosecutions. He is also endorsed by the Marshall Police Officers' Association (MPOA).

His experience goes beyond the courtroom. McCain has spent his 23 years of public service as both a prosecutor and police officer. From patrolman to lieutenant to Assistant District Attorney of Gregg County, McCain has a career of investigating, arresting and prosecuting offenders ranging from traffic cases to capital murder.

“As the District Attorney of Harrison County, I intend to ensure fair, firm prosecution while stopping the revolving door of criminals returning to our streets and fighting for victims of all crime in our county.” McCain said. “As a dedicated, lifelong public servant, I have seen the impact that repeat offenders have on our community and I know the dangers that they pose to victims. I will work tirelessly with local law enforcement and provide them the tools necessary to pursue criminals in our county.”

McCain will face Harrison County District Attorney, Republican Coke Solomon.

“I am a longtime East Texan and a fair, principled Christian, family man, leader and dedicated lifelong public servant who believes in the rule of law and that justice should be dispensed as evenly and firmly as possible while being a good steward of taxpayer dollars,” McCain said.

Reid McCain is a licensed Texas attorney in good standing and a veteran law enforcement officer. He is a graduate of Oklahoma City University School of Law where he obtained his Juris Doctor (J.D.). McCain also holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Criminal Justice from Louisiana State University in Shreveport (LSUS).

He is married to Melissa McCain who works for the Longview Cardiac and Vascular Consultants of Diagnostic Clinic of Longview. They reside in Harleton and are the proud parents of two daughters and one son. The family attends and are members of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Marshall.
