Openly gay Dallas County District Clerk gives an impassioned speech in support of Commissioner John Wiley Price during Tuesday's Stonewall Democrats meeting.

Tensions ran high during a Stonewall Democrats of Dallas meeting Tuesday night, as a standing-room-only crowd gathered to hammer out the group’s slate of endorsed candidates for the May 29 primary.

More than 100 Stonewallers crowded into the back room at Ojeda’s Restaurant on Maple Avenue, where the group’s general membership voted to endorse four candidates who weren’t recommended by a committee that met last weekend.

The general membership voted to endorse John Wiley Price for Dallas County Commissioners Court District 3, Eric Johnson for Texas House District 100, Sean Hubbard for U.S. Senate and Dominique Collins for Criminal District Court No. 4.

The general membership also ratified the remainder of the endorsement committee’s recommended slate, which can be found here.
