Governor Abbott Endorses Rep. Davis Challenger in GOP Primary
In a video released this morning, Governor Greg Abbott has endorsed Susanna Dokupil in the GOP primary for House District 134 - a district currently held by Chairman Sarah Davis. This video comes in advance of a Harris County GOP meeting tonight where Rep. Davis was rumored to be "censured" by the county GOP. Read more about that here.
Update: According to a recent e-blast by the Quorum Report, this censure vote will likely NOT take place.
This move may or may not dramatically affect Rep. Davis' race, considering the political pragmatism that has been proven appealing to HD 134 voters in the past. According to Davis, "Republican voters in HD 134 will not be told for whom to vote, and will not nominate a candidate who will be so easily defeated in the fall."
Davis recently held her campaign kick-off in her home district where she was endorsed by Harris County Judge Ed Emmett.
