Ames Jones misses runoff
Wed May 30, 2012 8:22 am

Now what? Texans for Lawsuit Reform invested a ton of money in Elizabeth Ames Jones, their handpicked candidate to defeat state senator Jeff Wentworth of San Antonio. But Ames Jones failed to make the runoff, leaving physician Donna Campbell to oppose Wentworth. Jones is well known in San Antonio, in contrast to Campbell. Now TLR must introduce their new stalking horse to the district. Campbell is best known as having come close to knocking Lloyd Doggett out of Congress in 2010.

The question is, what will it take for TLR to introduce Campbell to the voters in SD-25? Unlike Ames Jones (and Wentworth), Campbell is not well known in San Antonio. Meanwhile, all those folks in SD-25 who thought the negative ads might end when Ames Jones didn't make the runoff are going to have to suffer through another round.
