On Thursday, June 5, Lon Burnam announced that he will not take his lawsuit–which dealt with how mail-in ballot applications were acquired in the recent Democratic primary–to the federal level, ending three months of contention with the primary winner, Ramon Romero, Jr.
In a statement to his supporters, Burnam, subject of this week’s cover story, Losing Lon, noted that “I will continue to work for the people of Texas, and against special economic interests seeking to victimize them.”
Romero responded with a press release of his own, which began “The election-challenge has been dismissed and it’s time to unite as one.”
Romero thanked Burnam for his 18 years as Fort Worth’s representative in Austin and promised to work hard for the people of District 90. Romero, who is running unchallenged for Burnam’s former seat, also promised to work had to get Democrats elected this Fall. “[W]e must unite to elect Democrats in November because the stakes are too high for our children.”
Lon: Thanks for all your work.
Ramon: Good luck. Work hard.
