As the candidates head toward the Texas run-off elections scheduled for May 22nd, WPA Intelligence released their survey (4/26-28; 400 TX-6 likely run-off voters) of the open 6th District Republican run-off between Tarrant County Assessor Ron Wright and airline pilot and Iraq War veteran Jake Ellzey. According to the results, Mr. Wright is staked to a 47-24% lead as the run-off campaign turns toward its final two weeks.
In the March 6th primary, Mr. Wright placed first with 45% as compared to Mr. Ellzey’s 22 percent. Because Wright did not garner majority support the secondary election is required. The eventual Republican nominee will be a heavy favorite against the Democratic run-off winner. Also, on May 22nd, the contest between journalist Jana Lynne Sanchez (D) and pastor Ruby Faye Woolridge (D) will be decided. In the primary, Ms. Woolridge topped Ms. Sanchez by just 15 votes, but neither were anywhere close to obtaining majority support.
