Conservative Republicans Brandon Creighton and Steve Toth face one another in the special election runoff Aug. 5, 2014 for State Senate District 4, formerly held by CPA Sen. Tommy Williams (R-The Woodlands). Williams resigned the seat to become Vice Chancellor at Texas A & M last November.
The Houston Chronicle announced their support for Creighton. Creighton won 45% of the vote compared to Toth's 24% in the original special election. Evidently the Chronicle approved of Creighton's approach to the boarder crises over Toth's rhetoric on the issue.
