There is a special election for House District 28 between Elizabeth Markowitz and Gary Gates. Here are the results of campaign funds per the Texas Ethics Commission:
Gary Gates is one of those guys who runs for office, over, and over, and over again. He is also very wealthy, wealthy like Texas Representative Money Mayes Middleton, Kathaleen Wall, or Tony Buzbee.
It hasn’t worked for Gates in the past. In 2005 he began loaning himself money and spending from his own pocket in a race for State Senator District 18. He lost. In 2014 he ran again, this time loaning himself $1.7 Million. He lost. In 2016 be ran for Railroad Commissioner loaning himself about $4.5 Million. He lost.
Gates is just another Tony Buzbee. Rich. Politically ignorant.
