Jaworski, Paxton & Runoff Primaries!

Updated: Mar 7, 2022

There's lots of primary news we'll be discussing at the LIV Forum -- moved from this coming Monday to Wednesday, March 9, 7 to 8 pm.

Please RSVP here! Special guest: Joe Jaworski, Democratic runoff candidate for Attorney General and others TBA.

Breaking News! Joe Jaworski is in the Democratic runoff for Attorney General! Joe received a 5-star rating from LIV for a reason. Joe's 5-minute video here will start the conversation for us on Wednesday night. The runoff is on May 23.

Voters received this mailing on Thursday, March 4th two days after Election Day, likely costing big bucks for Don Huffines, "an actual Republican."

Nuff said about the divisions in the Republican Party that might be the best thing that ever happened to Attorney General Ken Paxton who had to claw his way through a 4-way primary with big Republican names -- Eva Guzman, Louie Gohmert and George P. Bush. Paxton is now in a runoff with Bush. More here in The Texas Tribune.

We congratulate LIV's independent positive Republicans and Democrats who won their primaries. They are Republican Clara Beckett (Bastrop Co. Commissioner, Pct. 2), Democrat Loyd Richeson (Medina Co. Commissioner, Pct. 4) and Republican Bobby Seiferman, Matagorda County Judge who is unchallenged in November.

Regretfully, LIV's 5-star rated candidate, Tom Glass, running a crowded five-way Republican primary for House District 17 (Bastrop, Burleson, Caldwell, Lee and Milam counties), ran a strong third place short by only about 400 votes. There’s now a runoff for the Texas House District 17 Republican nomination between Paul Pape and Stan Gerdes. Madeline "Maddie" Eden, running uncontested for the Democratic nomination will be the Democratic nominee in HD-17.

{Update on Glass campaign 3/7/22. Tom is working on raising the funds for a recount. As a cyber- security expert, he is well qualified to verify this election. No one is being accused of "stealing this election" but any candidate has the right to a recount so long as they pay the costs.]

Also, regretfully, LIV 4.5 star rated candidate, progressive Democrat, Chris Leal of Dallas, was also running in a five-way contest and came up just short of 3rd place.

We would only add that it became clear during this first primary involvement for LIV that both Tom Glass and Chris Leal are leaders.

Humbly, LIV needs to grow the independent, cross-partisan movement to become a more effective voice for collaboration and less confrontation.

More soon, y'all!
