At least three other names have surfaced so far. One is Rebecca Boenigk, (pronounced “BAY-nig), whose announcement touted her ability to create jobs. She is the CEO and chairman of Neutral Posture, Inc., which the release bills as “one of the nation’s leading manufacturers of ergonomic office chairs.” Her resume is mostly civic, not political. Another likely contender to replace Brown is Bryan mayor Jason Bienski. Former tax assessor-collector Buddy Winn could run as well; he forced Brown into a runoff in the 2010 primary, but Brown easily won the runoff. This shapes up as a very competitive race.
