Early voting at a trickle in special election to succeed Sen. Pat Fallon
Tiny numbers of voters heading to the polls in the expansive district as Shelley Luther goes negative on TV against Chairman Springer
Early voting is underway
for the special election to replace Sen. Pat Fallon of Prosper but you would
be forgiven for not noticing given the low turnout.
In the six-way race for Senate
District 30 are five Republicans and one Democrat. Running on the Republican
side are Texas House Agriculture and Livestock Chairman Drew
Springer of Muenster, Denton Mayor Chris Watts, software engineer Andy
Hopper, business owner Craig Carter, who ran in the 2018 primary,
and activist and hair salon owner Shelley Luther. The only Democrat is International
Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 20 Secretary Jacob Minter.
