District 2 Race: It's a Run-Off

Lubbock's only run-off take place in a race of unity.

"I'd be more excited if I'd completely won the thing," said Floyd Price.

He's on Cloud 8. He came in second, but no small feat against a 20 year incumbent, forcing a run-off on June 19th.

"It's going to be interesting," he said.

And it's already been interesting. On election night, there were no individual watch parties, instead there were hugs, as all of the candidates watched the results together.

"That's indicative of what District 2 stands for, people working together to make a difference, and whoever comes out ahead, we're going to be there to support them," said third place finisher Janie Landin Ramirez.

"District 2 is about to become a united community," said sixth place finisher Nathaniel Alsbrooks II.

"We have no animosity towards each other," said Price.

Definitely, not politics as usual.

The only person absent? The incumbent, T.J. Patterson, in the hospital since Tuesday with an undisclosed medical condition. His wife saying that if re-elected: "Doctors have assured him that it will not affect his ability to perform his duties."

Back at the diner, there was applause for Price with an understanding that friendship comes with accountability.

"If I'm elected, these candidates are going to hold my nose to the grind and make sure that I deliver," said Price.
