As Travis County GOP Chair urges unity among Republicans trying to win back a Texas House seat, Fleck plans to file election contest

GOP candidate Jennifer Fleck, who trailed Justin Berry by 9 points in the runoff, tells Republicans to "REFUSE TO VOTE UNTIL YOU KNOW YOUR VOTE COUNTS!!!"

Despite finishing 9 points in the runoff behind Justin Berry, Republican nominee for Texas House District 47 Justin Berry, GOP candidate Jennifer Fleck this week plans to file an election contest in Travis County court. She confirmed that to Quorum Report this morning.

This was the runoff to face off this fall against Rep. Vikki Goodwin, D-Austin, in the district that takes in much of western Travis County. The county’s Republican Party Chairman Matt Mackowiak this morning said the party had seen no evidence of any problems with the voting and “It is time for all Republicans to unite behind Justin Berry, who won the runoff by a decisive margin.”

But Fleck said she agreed with Bexar County GOP Chair Cynthia Brehm, who also lost her runoff and recently made headlines by questioning whether the death of George Floyd was a hoax intended to hurt President Donald Trump, that there were irregularities in the voting process that essentially amount to a rigged election.
