Gary Gates finally buys a seat in the Texas House!

Money Mayes Middleton and Tony Buzbee should be so proud.

Gary Gates put over $1.5 Million of his own money into a special election to win a seat at the table. From a previous post:

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 MiddletonKathaleen 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. 

So he finally won with money left over. He did what Tony Buzbee couldn’t do. Next up, Kathleen Walls should spend about $6 million in her attempt to win in CD22.
