AG Contender Justin Nelson Coming to Amarillo

One statewide Democrat will be making the trek to Amarillo next week.

Justin Nelson, the Democratic candidate for Texas attorney general, will visit Amarillo on Tuesday, August 21st. Nelson will present a town hall forum and will participate in a meet and greet at the Hoffbrau Steakhouse (7203 I-40 West) at 7pm. Light appetizers will be provided, but individuals may order food from the menu.

Nelson is the Democratic candidate taking on Republican Ken Paxton and Libertarian Michael Harris in the November election. Paxton was first elected in 2014 and is seeking his second term in the spot.

A June poll had Nelson trailing Paxton by one point, which garnered national media attention. Harris was not included in that survey.
