Candidates in Saint Landry Parish are already lining up for the sheriff's race.
The election is not until this fall but over the weekend Laura Balthazar announced her intentions to run.
Incumbent Sheriff Bobby Guidroz stated that he is really confident in the job they've done, but doesn't think he has the upper hand in the upcoming race.
Guidroz says he hasn't formally announcement his intentions to run, but he did tell us he's planning to formally announce his campaign for re-election sometime later this week.
St. Landry voters will make their choice this fall.
