Texas House District 28 in Fort Bend County has long been a reliably Republican seat. But as the population boomed over the past few years, the area shifted from dark red to pink. Then, incumbent representative Dr. John Zerwas resigned at the end of September. Now, seven candidates are vying for the seat in a special election.
Dr. Elizabeth Markowitz is the sole Democratic contender. The Republican field includes Dr. Anna Allred, Tricia Krenek, Gary Gates, Gary Hale, Clinton Purnell and Sarah Laningham.
