MARTIN/GAINES COUNTY - Petitioners for allowing alcohol sales in several dry counties are struggling to find enough support.

Members of the "Wet is Best" Group tell NewsWest 9, they've been working to start a petition to allow the sale of beer and wine in Gaines and Martin Counties.

But they've run into a few problems.

They say there's either not enough people who are willing to support the petition or not enough people willing to sign.

Earlier this week, County Commissioners in Andrews approved two petitions for legalizing alcohol sales.
