Governor Perry Sets June 3rd Runoff Date for Special Election

Governor Rick Perry set Tuesday, June 3rd as the runoff date in the special election to fill the vacancy for Congressional District 19.

Congressional District 19 consists of Andrews, Bailey, Cochran, Crane, Ector, Gaines, Hockley, Howard, Loving, Lubbock, Lynn, Martin, Midland, Parmer, Terry, Ward, Winkler, and Yoakum counties, as well as part of Lamb county.

The names of Republicans Mike Conway and Randy Neugebauer will appear on the runoff ballot. Conway and Neugebauer received the most votes in the May 3rd special election, but no candidate won a majority of the votes cast.

Perry certified the special election results Friday. The early voting period for this runoff election will run from Monday, May 19th through Friday, May 30th.

The Congressional District 19 seat was left vacant with the announced resignation of U.S. Representative Larry Combest. In a January letter to Perry, Combest declared his intention to leave office May 31st. The U.S. Representative elected in this special election will serve out the remainder of Combest's term.
