A CWS Research poll (5/4-10; 992 TX likely Republican primary runoff voters; interactive voice response system and text) reports that Attorney General Ken Paxton is substantially ahead of Land Commissioner George P. Bush, the son of former Florida Governor and 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush. The CWS results find AG Paxton holding a whopping 58-31% lead as the candidates move toward the state’s May 24th runoff election date. In the primary, Mr. Paxton garnered 42.7% of the vote, which is obviously short of the majority vote a candidate needs to win the nomination outright. In a field of four candidates, Mr. Bush finished second with 22.8%.
