Tepper, Glasheen headed to runoff in Dist. 84
LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - In the Republican primary for Texas House District 84, Carl Tepper and David Glasheen are headed to a May 24 runoff.
Here are unofficial final results:
- Kade Wilcox 1,515 - 13%
- Cheryl Little 574 - 5%
- David Glasheen 4,886 - 42%
- Carl Tepper 4,691 - 40%
Tuesday night Tepper reiterated one of his campaign points.
“I think they know who the real Trump Republican is,” Tepper said. “I was the first, statewide, Republican party leader in Texas to endorse President Trump. We stand by that, we’re very proud of the president.”
Tepper added he believes voters “understood what the truth was going through the primary election. I think they understood some of the inaccuracies that were being said and were able to push through those things.”
Glasheen said Tuesday night his messaging will remain the same. “I think we’ve been consistently saying that I’m the candidate who’s going to secure the border, reduce crime, reduce property taxes, fight for Texas Tech and public education.”
A candidate needs one vote more than 50 percent to win.
This race is to succeed State Representative John Frullo, who did not seek re-election. There is no Democrat candidate. The winner of the runoff will win the seat.
