Source in #TX06 shares mysterious texts, going to Democrats, that remind them that Wright is the Trump candidate and call Ellzey “a champion for our public education system.”

It’s an R-on-R race but anecdotally, I’ve heard of Dems casting protest votes for Ellzey.


Not so mysterious! I’ve become very skeptical about last-minute texts, but this is from Ellzey’s campaign.

Pre-Election Analysis

After the death of incumbent Republican Ron Wright in February 2021 due to COVID complications, Texas 6th Congressional District fell vacant. Despite Republicans being favored, there were chances of Democrats winning the seat after the district showed an improved Democratic performance in the 2020 US Presidential election. Trump won the district by 51 percent vote share while Biden won 48 percent vote share.

On May 1, 2021 Texas’s 6th congressional district special election took place. The fight was between two Republicans, Susan Wright and Jake Ellzey and two Democrats’ Jana Sanchez and Brain Harrison. Susan Wright is a widow of incumbent Republican Ron Wright. The election result did not throw up a clear winner as none of the candidates got 50% of vote. After the election, two Republican Susan Wright and Jake Ellzey got the maximum votes with Susan getting 19.21% votes and Jake Ellzey receiving 13.85%. Democrat Jana Sanchez received 13.4% vote share and thereby failing to make into the runoffs.

Since both the candidates are Republicans, the seat will remain with Republicans however, the final result will determine the influence of former President Donald Trump on the voters. Susan Wright has been endorsed by Trump. Before the special election, Trump said, “Susan Wright will be a terrific Congresswoman (TX-06) for the Great State of Texas.
