Governor Sets July 27 as Special Runoff Date for U.S. House District 6
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has selected July 27 as the date of the special election runoff to replace the late Rep. Ron Wright in Texas’ 6th Congressional District.
Ron Wright, a second-term congressman, died in February after being diagnosed with COVID-19.
The race for Wright’s unfinished term pits Wright’s widow, Susan Wright, against state Rep. Jake Ellzey of Waxahachie.
Wright, a member of the State Republican Executive Committee, finished first in the May 1 special election, which had 23 candidates. She got 19% of the vote.
Ellzey came in second with 14%.
