BREAKING: Joel Burns won’t seek Wendy Davis’ Senate seat

Openly gay Fort Worth Councilman Joel Burns will not be seeking the Democratic nomination for Senate District 10, the seat currently held by gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis.

Burns announced his decision in an email Wednesday afternoon, citing his desire to continue his work on the Fort Worth City Council and family among his reasons.

“After many weeks of thought and consideration, my next steps have became very clear to me,” Burns announcement reads in part. “And I want to share with you — my many friends, neighbors and supporters — my decision: Quite simply, the job I most want is the one I already have.

“The mere prospect of serving in the Texas Senate is an incredible honor. And I am humbled that so many of you have entertained the prospect with me. But in evaluating what I want to do next, I have come to the realization that I have the job I want — to serve the people of Fort Worth and Council District 9.”
