Workman Wins in Republican Primary


In Texas House District 47 covering western Travis County, incumbent Paul Workman handily won his Republican primary.

With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Workman bested Ryan Downton, 67 percent (9,644 votes) to 33 percent (4,782). 

Downton ran to the right of Workman in the primary, accusing him of authoring a bill that would grant amnesty to illegal immigrants, a charge Workman denied.
