Hegar defeated Dallas State Senator Royce West by more than 7-percentage points back in the March Primary. Now she finds herself facing off head-to-head with Senator West in the Primary Runoff Election on July 14th to see who will face Senator Cornyn in November.
Hegar refused to even acknowledge the other two candidates saying, “I don't consider myself running against anything. I am running for the people of Texas. I am running for the kids that are still in cages. I'm running for the millions of Texans that are unemployed and have lost health insurance and the millions of Texans before in the pandemic that didn't have health insurance.”
Friday is the last day for early voting for the Primary Runoff.
