On the 19th District Road Again

Both candidates say they're not inheriting new campaigning strategies this time around. But trying to learn new lasso techniques to get more votes than they did before.

Republican candidates Randy Neugebauer of Lubbock and Mike Conaway of Midland are fighting for the 56.6% of the votes now unclaimed for the run-off election, and they have 32 days to do that. "We will spend a lot of time in Lubbock and the surrounding counties and to try and convince voters that I'm the person to vote for," said Midland candidate Mike Conaway.

Conaway spent his Monday getting back on the campaign track and working out strategies with his campaigning treasurer in Lubbock. He's also spent the day visiting television stations in Midland-Odessa and Lubbock.

On the other hand, Neugebauer, too, started early in the morning. Hitting the road from Lubbock to Midland to Odessa to Big Spring back up to Lubbock. A total of 309 miles. A long journey in one day, but a journey Neugebauer plans to do again.

"The number of times we'll be able to do that will be reduced. We'll be back out. I mean that's what brought us here. We have good grass roots, support out in the district, and we did that by going out and asking people to support our candidacy and work on our behalf," said Lubbock candidate, Randy Neugebauer.

So the pressure is on, once again, for these two men. Pressure to win the most votes. Pressure to convince you that one of them is the right man for congress.

Conaway told NewsChannel 11 there may be an opportunity between now and the run-off election for a public forum. The run-off election is likely to be held on Saturday, June 7th.
