Second Woman Enters Race For Texas Governor
Updated: Tuesday, October 8 2013, 11:38 AM CDT
Greg Abbott's campaign for the Texas governor has drawn a challenge from a woman with a large microphone but this time it's not Wendy Davis.
Austinite Lisa Fritch announced today her entry into the growing competition for the Republican nomination to replace Gov. Rick Perry.
The conservative author and activist hosted a talk show on 590 KLBJ AM and regularly appears as a commentator on nationally-syndicated political programs.
She made her announcement before a crowd of dozens inside a hamburger shop in North Austin. She joins former Texas Republican Party Chairman Tom Pauken in a quixotic campaign to beat Attorney General Abbott who is widely believed to be the frontrunner and who has a multi-million dollar campaign war chest.
Fritsch today cast herself as an outsider taking on the GOP establishment.
"It is time for us to be energized by a leader who inspires true change from the old guard and who calls us towards a united Texas, a Texas where we lead because we are called to serve and not simply because it is the natural tide of our own political ambition," she declared.
Fritsch's entry in the race expands the number of women vying for the Governor's Mansion to two. Democratic State Senator Wendy Davis announced her bid in suburban Fort Worth last Thursday.
