Announcement from County Party Chair Janel Ponder Smith regarding Special Election for State Senator in Senate District 30 (SD30) – A special election for our Senate District is set for Sept. 29.  John Ratcliffe, who was the representative of Congressional District 4, was recently tapped by Trump to serve as the National Director of Intelligence.  Pat Fallon, who defeated Kevin Lopez for the State Senator from district 30 in 2018, resigned as state senator to run for Ratcliffe’s vacated congressional district. 

 

With a vacant state senate seat, Greg Abbott announced on Aug. 23 that a special election to fill the state senate seat would be held Sept. 29.  We were given five days to find a Democratic candidate, and Jacob Minter, from Anna, said he’d run.  He’s a 36-year-old husband and father, a union member, and centrist in his views.  He only has two weeks until early voting starts for this special election

 

Republican Shelly Luther, the salon owner who refused to close her business when COVID-19 became rampant, has filed to run.  Also, state representative Drew Springer from Muenster filed, as has the mayor of Denton filed, and a couple of other Republicans. 

 

PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD THAT THERE IS A SPECIAL ELECTION ON SEPTEMBER 29 - WE NEED TO GET LOTS OF DEMOCRATS OUT TO VOTE FOR THIS. 

 

EARLY VOTING BEGINS SEPTEMBER 14.
