Calling him an “energetic warrior,” Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner has endorsed Rep. Borris Miles (D-Houston) to succeed Sen. Rodney Ellis (D-Houston). The Miles campaign began distributing the endorsement letter, dated July 1, late this week.

Miles also touted the endorsements of former Houston Mayor Annise Parker, Sen. John Whitmire and Rep. Jarvis Johnson. He also said he had the support of Rep. Harold Dutton, who was included on a list of endorsements issued by Rep. Senfronia Thompson (D-Houston) earlier in the week. She claims the support of eight of her House colleagues.
