Sandragrace Martinez is currently in a runoff against fellow Democrat Jay Kleberg for their party’s nomination to be Texas’ next land commissioner. The Bexar County native joined East Texas Now on Monday morning to talk about how her rise from humble beginnings has influenced her campaign and how it might influence her should she win the office.
The Supreme Court has been in the news recently on a load of fronts. One decision dealt with a challenging case dealing with a former high school coach’s practice of kneeling in prayer after a football game.
Jay Kleberg, currently in a runoff against Sandragrace Martinez for the Democratic Party’s nomination to be Texas Land Commissioner, spoke with East Texas Now’s Devyn Shea about his campaign’s priorities and how he hopes to shape the office should he win in November. Kleberg, who is heir to Texas’ iconic King Ranch, said he brings a wealth of experience regarding land management, natural disaster relief and natural resource management.
George P. Bush said he's prioritizing border security and election security as he campaigns against incumbent Ken Paxton for the Republican nomination for Texas attorney general. He also said that he doesn't consider his family's political legacy to be a liability and that in fact "this is the time where we need a Bush" in office.
