LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - John Frullo and his supporters were thrilled when the election results came in. He's the Republican candidate for the District 84 seat.
That's the district of outgoing Representative Carl Isset who decided not to run again to pursue his military career. Isset endorsed Frullo who like Isset is a CPA. Now Frullo hopes to help balance the state budget.
"I think that the biggest issue is the budget shortfall, and with my background that's where I think I'm uniquely suited to tackle that problem," said Frullo.
Frullo came in second to Mark Griffin during the March primary, and he thinks the extra time between then and the run-off helped him clinch the nomination.
"We were building momentum the whole time and we needed more time to get our message out," he said.
Frullo will now face Democrat Carol Morgan in the general election.
