Harris Makes Final Push During District Tour

Texas House District 8 candidate Cody Harris, former Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples and Dr. Linda Timmerman conducted a district-wide Get Out The Vote tour Thursday, May 17. The Navarro County Rally included lunch at the Corsicana Country Club.

Timmerman, one of Harris’ primary opponents who has gone on to endorse the candidate, and Staples encouraged supporters to get out and vote for Harris on May 22.

“In this runoff election there is a real choice,” Timmerman said. “Cody is a person who will stick by his word and protect educators and public education.”

She said Tuesday, May 22 is the last day to vote and choose a candidate who represents us and rural Texas values.

Harris and his opponent Thomas McNutt are in the final days of a contentious campaign to represent House District 8.

Harris held events Thursday in Hillsboro, Fairfield, Corsicana, and a gathering in Palestine to conclude the day.

“I am happy with the positive response I heard as Todd and I traveled the district with Cody,” Timmerman said. “Cody is the right voice for rural Texans. He will be a voice for all of us in Austin.”

“I’ve known Cody for a long time, I know what kind of man he is,” Staples said. “He is the one who will fight for small towns so we can all continue to live in the greatest areas in the greatest state in the country. No matter what the other side says about him, rest assured that he is a good man who will represent rural Texans, fight for our kids’ education, and work to keep our property taxes low.”

The primary runoff election day is Tuesday, May 22 and polls are open from 7a.m. to 7 p.m.

Navarro County residents may vote at any county polling place.
