The race for district attorney between Nola Foulston and Mark Schoenhofer has turned into one of the ugliest, most personal races in the area. But now as the polls start to wind down, all the candidates say they can do now, is bide their time.

The race between District Attorney Nola Foulston and Mark Shoenhofer has been far from friendly, with Schoenhofer calling Foulston soft on crime. During debates, he's argued she had the chance to put people like Elgin Robinson, who was found guilty of masterminding the murder of Chelsea Brooks, behind bars several times.

"This is an opportunity to make the district attorney's office accountable," said Mark Schoenhofer, who's running for District Attorney in Sedgwick County.

Incumbent Foulson, who's been the D.A. for nearly 20 years, has launched her own tough campaign calling Schoenhofer someone lacking experience who was also financially irresponsible.

"This is the financial picture of someone who is not financially responsible, this goes with the bankruptcy, this goes with the tax warrant filed against him after he filed for bankruptcy, these are things you need to consider," said Sedgwick County District Attorney.

KAKE News did try to contact Foulston but were unable to reach her. We were told she plans to watch the results with her family.
