Matthew Dowd, the former chief strategist for George W. Bush’s presidential reelection campaign, has announced he’s removing his name from the race for lieutenant governor.
In a tweet posted earlier today, Dowd wrote his decision comes from a place of integrity, as he intends to make way for people with a more diverse background to join the race.
It looks like Texas Democratic Party vice-chair Carla Brailey is planning to enter the Lt. Gov. race instead. An official announcement is soon to come.
