Texas House District 97 Special Election Run-off Update

From the Star Telegram:

Democrat Dan Barrett defeated Republican Mark Shelton on Tuesday in the runoff to replace Republican state Rep. Anna Mowery in the Texas House.

Barrett defeated Shelton, 52 percent to 48 percent, with 100 percent of precincts reporting at 8:59 p.m., according to the Tarrant County Elections Office. Barrett received 5,365 votes to Shelton’s 4,913.
In the 2000 Census there were over 145,000 people in this district. Only a little over 10,000 of these folks saw fit to vote, 7% showed up at the polls. A very liberal, most likely anti gun representative was elected by less than 4% of the population.

Well, it is the holidays and all...
