Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thehill.com: “Susan Wright advances to runoff in Texas special election”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Republican Susan Wright on Saturday advanced to a runoff in the race to represent Texas’s 6th Congressional District, while other candidates continued to vie for the second spot.

Wright was seen as the frontrunner in the race, scoring a coveted endorsement from former President Trump. 

"Susan Wright will be a terrific Congresswoman (TX-06) for the Great State of Texas. She is the wife of the late Congressman Ron Wright, who has always been supportive of our America First Policies,” Trump said in a statement earlier this week.

Nearly two dozen candidates were competing in the crowded blanket primary. Because no candidate received more than 50 percent of the vote, a runoff will be held no earlier than May 24 between the two top vote-getters.

As of late Saturday night, fellow Republican Jake Ellzey and Democrat Jana Lynne Sanchez were the top candidates behind Wright.
