Tuesday, November 13, 2001  •  Press Release

AUSTIN - Governor Rick Perry today set Tuesday, December 4, as the run-off date in the special election to fill the vacancy for Senate District 30.

Candidates in the run-off election will be Craig Estes, Republican, and Greg Underwood, Democrat. Estes and Underwood drew the two highest vote totals in the Nov. 2 election. Neither captured above 50 percent.

According to Texas law, the governor must set a run-off date within 20 to 30 days from the time votes in the special election are canvassed. Votes in the Senate District 30 special election were canvassed on Nov. 12.

Senate District 30 consists of Archer, Armstrong, Baylor, Briscoe, Carson, Castro, Childress, Clay, Collingsworth, Cooke, Cottle, Dickens, Donley, Fisher, Floyd, Foard, Grayson, Hall, Hardeman, Haskell, Jones, Kent, King, Knox, Montague, Motley, Scurry, Stonewall, Swisher, Throckmorton, Wheeler, Wichita and Wilbarger counties, as well as parts of Collin, Denton and Taylor counties.

The Senate District 30 seat was left vacant earlier this year with the death of Sen. Tom Haywood, R-Wichita Falls. The senator elected in this special election will serve out the remainder of Haywood's term.
