Election 2019: Texas LGBT Caucus could gain a member in November

Eliz Markowitz is the only Democrat running in the Texas House District 28 race. She faces six Republicans. The top two vote-getters will face each other in a December run-off. Markowitz has been endorsed by the LGBT Victory Fund and the Human Rights Campaign.

District 28 is west of Houston, primarily in Fort Bend County. The incumbent, John Zerwas, (R-Richmond) was appointed executive vice chancellor for health affairs for the University of Texas System. He resigned his seat on Sept. 30.

“As a member of the LGBTQ community and lifelong educator, Markowitz will be an important addition and necessary voice for equality in the Texas Legislature,” said HRC Texas State Director Rebecca Marques.

Victory Fund named her a “spotlight candidate,” which puts her in the top tier of its endorsed candidates and indicates the organization believes she has a good shot at flipping the district.

According to her website, Markowitz was raised in Sugar Land.
