FORT WORTH -- State Rep. Mark Shelton has re-filed an ethics complaint against state Sen. Wendy Davis for "not disclosing her business relationships with state lobbyists."
The original complaint Shelton, a Republican, filed earlier this month was dismissed last week by the Texas Ethics Commission for not meeting "legal and technical form requirements."
Shelton's campaign staff said they fixed the problem cited by the commission and resubmitted the complaint late Friday.
Davis, a Democrat, and Shelton are locked in a contentious battle for state Senate District 10, which she currently represents.
This is one of the most watched political fights in Texas, as Republican leaders in Congress and statewide stand with Shelton in an effort to reclaim the district for the GOP and Democrats statewide stand with Davis in her quest to serve another four years in the Texas Senate. In 2008, in another fierce battle for this district, Davis unseated longtime Republican state Sen. Kim Brimer of Arlington.
