The Democrats are out in the 6th Congressional District of Texas. Susan Wright, the widow of the late Ron Wright finished in first place in a large pool of candidates against Democrats and Republicans. Now, Wright will face off against Jake Ellzey, another Republican in a run-off election for the late Wright’s vacated seat.
In recent year, the district trended in favor of Democrats, but Democrats were eliminated from the race on Saturday, with Democrat Jana Sanchez finishing in a distant third place.
“Congratulations to Susan Wright on her great surge yesterday which made her NUMBER ONE and assures her participation in the TX-06 runoff against another Republican,” Trump said. “The Democrats have just conceded the race. Susan surged after I gave her an endorsement last week. Her wonderful husband is looking down, and is very proud of her! “
