In our story last week on out state House candidates, gay Republican Michael Cargill wasn’t mentioned.
Cargill, who’s running in the special election Nov. 5 to fill Mark Strama’s unexpired term, has been a business owner for 10 years. He currently owns Central Texas Gun Works in Austin.
He’s the only Republican who’s filed to run in the special election, and will be up against lesbian Democrat Celia Israel, among others. If he doesn’t win in November, he plans to run again in the Republican Primary and to seek the Victory Fund’s endorsement.
