Candidate in Lufkin

by Christa Lollis

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - He's running for a spot in the Supreme Court of Texas with no background as a judge but Sam Houston says, he's got experience in law to offer East Texans.

Houston held a fundraiser tonight at the Red Barn where he met people in the area including Charlie Wilson and several county officials.  Houston has been a lawyer and practicing in Houston for many years and now he's hoping to win over East Texans.

He says in the Supreme Court of Texas he would make sure big business quits winning unfairly.  He also wants to make sure court decisions are upheld fairly so that the true victims get restitution.
