Former Representative John Wray and recent congressional candidate Brian Harrison were the top two vote-getters in yesterday’s quick-turnaround special election to replace former state representative Jake Ellzey, who won the recent special election to replace the late Ron Wright in TX-6.
Wray showed strong early on, winning the early vote by 5 points with 42% over Harrison’s 37%. Harrison surged in election day vote, ultimately winning the day by about 600 votes with 40% over Wray’s 36%. Since neither candidate reached 50%, the Governor will call a runoff date very soon.
