UPDATE: Former Railroad Commissioner Michael Williams of Arlington is accepting Cleburne Mayor Justin Hewlett's offer to tour District 25, his campaign announced late Thursday.
"Mayor Hewlett is extremely kind. Michael accepts his offer," Williams' campaign wrote, noting that "140,000 Texans in [District] 25 voted for Michael for a third time in 2008."
Williams' campaign didn't stop there: "Commissioner Michael Williams has won three Republican Primary elections and three General Elections in the state of Texas, earning more than 12,200,000 votes in those elections. Justin Hewlett was elected Mayor of Cleburne 17 months ago with 1,137 votes."
The original post:
Cleburne Mayor Justin Hewlett today offered to give a personal tour of Congressional District 25 -- which he is seeking -- to two of his fellow Republican challengers: Roger Williams and Michael Williams.
The district stretches along more than 175 square miles, drawing its biggest population base -- about 240,000 voters -- from Austin-area communities. It also includes 150,000 residents in Johnson County and more than 7,000 in Tarrant County.
Democrat Elaine Henderson of Lago Vista will face the GOP primary winner in November.
