Rep. Senfronia Thompson’s campaign announced eight of her Harris Co. House colleagues, a Fort Bend Co. colleague, a couple of congressmen and several other key local civic and union leaders are on the host committee of an upcoming luncheon for Democratic precinct chairs.
Reps. Alma Allen, Garnet Coleman, Harold Dutton, Jessica Farrar, Ana Hernandez, Hubert Vo, Armando Walle and Gene Wu, all from Harris Co., are listed as luncheon hosts alongside U.S. Reps. Al Green and Gene Green, Rep. Ron Reynolds (D-Missouri City), Fort Bend Co. Comm. Grady Prestage and local Communications Workers of America leader Claude Cummings, among others.
Thompson is one of three known candidates seeking to be named the replacement nominee for SD13. Sen. Rodney Ellis (D-Houston) has abandoned his re-election bid to run for Harris Co. Commissioner. Also in the race are Rep. Borris Miles (D-Houston) and former Houston City Controller Ron Green. Democratic precinct chairs residing in SD13 will choose the replacement nominee on July 16.
