Ames Jones Ends Texas Senate Bid

November 7, 2011

The GOP field in the race for retiring Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison's, R-Texas, seat is shrinking, as railroad commissioner Elizabeth Ames Jones is abandoning her bid in favor of a state Senate run.

The Houston Chronicle reports that Ames Jones plans to leave the race and run against Republican Sen. Jeff Wentworth.

Ames Jones wasn't getting any traction in the Senate race and had only about $300,000 in her campaign account at the end of the third quarter.

Aside from gadfly candidates, her departure leaves only the three major GOP candidates in the race: frontrunning Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, former state Solicitor General Ted Cruz and former Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert.
