Former Tarrant County Tax-Assessor Collector Betsy Price is leading the five-way race for Fort Worth mayor after early voting. Price captured 45 percent of the early vote. Former Councilman Jim Lane is second with 26 percent, and former Councilman Cathy Hirt is third with 22 percent. Dan Barrett is fourth with 6 percent, followed by Nicolas Zebrun with 1 percent.
Of the five Fort Worth mayoral candidates, Price was the one whose answers to a recent right-wing religious voters guide were the least LGBT-friendly.
Fort Worth attorney and LGBT activist Jon Nelson, however, said he believes Price “has a good heart” but “just isn’t educated on gay issues.”
