#TXLEGE: Troxclair would be, easily, strongest GOP candidate for SD-14 special election (aka. #TroxStillRox)

"When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice;
But when a wicked man rules, the people groan."
Proverbs 29:2

With Kirk Watson having now had a day to bask in his semi-deserved accolades, attention now turns to the special election.  The Statesman's roundup about Democrats is good.  But it begs a natural follow-up question.  Who will Republicans run?!?

The answer is completely obvious: Ellen Troxclair.

She's already been elected within the district.  She attracted crossover votes in that election.  Furthermore, her record in office was spectacular.

The question, of course, is whether she'll actually do it.

When Ellen Troxclair first ran for council, she and Caleb had zero kids.  Now they have three.  That changes priorities.  If she decided against seeking a second council term when she had two kids, it's hard to ask her to run for another office when she has three.

But none of that changes the fact that she's, easily, the strongest potential candidate.

Bottom Line: We doubt she'll do it, but it's an easy call if she will.
