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:
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.
