In the Republican primary runoff election for Texas attorney general, incumbent Ken Paxton holds a significant lead according to recent polling of Republican voters.
The poll was performed by CWS Research and commissioned by the Defend Texas Liberty political action committee.
Their latest polling of Republican primary voters shows Paxton leading with 58 percent, while Bush trails with 31 percent, largely unchanged since a poll released by the organization last month.
Eleven percent said they were undecided in the race.
In the March primary election, Paxton finished in first place with 43 percent of the vote, with Bush coming in second with 23 percent. Because no candidate reached 50 percent, however, they are competing in the runoff election.
The same poll showed incumbent Railroad Commissioner Wayne Christian leading his runoff with 46 percent to his opponent Sarah Stogner’s 24 percent.
In the land commissioner race, State Sen. Dawn Buckingham holds the lead with 34 percent to Tim Westley’s 18 percent, though 48 percent of voters remain undecided.
Early voting begins in the runoff elections on May 16. Election Day is May 24.
