Susan Wright Advances In Special US House Election

The Associated Press reports:

Republican Susan Wright of Texas, the widow of the first member of Congress to die after contracting COVID-19, advanced to a U.S. House runoff for her late husband’s seat Saturday night. But who she will face remained too early to call.  With nearly all votes counted, Republican Jake Ellzey led Democrat Jana Lynne Sanchez by 354 votes in the race for the second runoff spot in Texas’ 6th Congressional District, which has long been GOP territory.

Wright has been the target of a robocall campaign which accuses her of killing her husband by deliberately giving him COVID. There were 23 candidates in the jungle primary.
