As she campaigns for the Republican nomination for district judge in Collin County, a candidate already under fire for some of her liberal views is now having to answer questions about a donation she made to a Democrat.

In the race for the nomination to the 401st Judicial District Court in Collin County, Texans for Courageous Courts has endorsed George Flint over local criminal defense attorney Sarah Fox.

Local conservative organizations, elected officials, and grassroots activists have united behind Flint’s campaign. Flint has a strong track record as a proven conservative. He recently served as chairman of the Collin County Republican Party, and in addition to his 40 years of experience in private practice, he has worked as a volunteer attorney for First Liberty, defending the freedom of association, right to religious expression, and other issues of religious liberty.

Fox, meanwhile, does not have the Republican activist record Flint has. Indeed, before running as a Republican, Fox was openly hostile to President Donald Trump, swearing to vote against him and for a third-party candidate in 2016. She has praised the Supreme Court’s activist same-sex marriage ruling, and in response to courts ordering Texas to recognize same-sex marriages on birth and death certificates, Fox tweeted that the news “makes [her] heart happy.”

The same year she was an active critic of then-candidate Donald Trump, Fox donated $150 to Nancy Kennedy, a Democrat running for Dallas Criminal District Court 2. Kennedy would go on to win that election.

Early voting in the race between Flint and Fox is ongoing. Election Day is July 14.
