On November 30, Andy Hopper endorsed Shelly Luther in the approaching Senate District 30 runoff election. Hopper, a Republican, finished fourth in the first round of voting in the special election to replace the “Premature” Pat Fallon’s exit from the Texas Senate.
Luther bested Rep. Drew Springer in the first round of the election.
Three days after the Hopper endorsement, Governor Abbott endorsed Springer who had a disappointing showing in the suspiciously timed Special Election.
This race has been contentious. Fallon was caught on film badgering Luther.
