Hegar Widens Lead Over Opponents In Primary To Choose Cornyn Challenger


MJ Hegar is widening her lead among the dozen Democrats in the primary to see who gets to challenge GOP Senator John Cornyn this fall. A poll released Monday by UT and the Texas Tribune says the Air Force combat vet has the support of 22-percent of Democrats. The result means she'll likely face one of her March 3rd primary rivals in a runoff in May. None of Hegar's rivals is polling above single-digits, but even as the best-known candidate, she has name recognition among less than a third of the Democrats surveyed.
