SD14 special: Black Austin Democrats endorsed Rep. Eddie Rodriguez (D-Austin).
CD13 open: Ronny Jackson leads Josh Winegarner, 49%-41%, among “likely Republican run-off election voters,” according to a new WPAi poll (PDF) conducted for the pro-Jackson Club for Growth Action PAC. Both candidates are viewed favorably by voters with Jackson (59/12) having a slight edge over Winegarner (56/16). Just over two of out of every three respondents correctly identified Jackson as the candidate endorsed by President Trump, more than double the number from a May survey, which found Winegarner leading Jackson, 47%-36%. Club for Growth has spent at least $250K in the race, primarily focusing on Trump’s endorsement. The poll of 408 “likely” runoff voters was in the field June 17-18 and conducted via live interviews over cell phones (62%) and landlines (38%). The stated margin of error is ±4.9%.
Wise Co. Sheriff Lake Akin (R) endorsed Winegarner.
