The Associated Press is reporting that Judge Debra Lehrmann (pictured) has defeated Rick Green in the runoff to determine the Republican candidate for Place 3 on the Texas Supreme Court. Judge Lehrmann will face Democratic nominee Justice Jim Sharp to fill the seat being vacated by Justice Harriet O’Neill.
Judge Lehrmann must have been fairly confident about the runoff, given yesterday’s announcement that she is treading new ground by distributing a video message using a new smart phone application made for the GOP. Meanwhile, the media has criticized Justice Sharp for lacking any significant web presence. Quite a contrast in approaches, I would say.
