Indie Candidate Drops Out of State Senate Race

The lone independent candidate for state Senate District 30 has bowed out of the race to replace Craig Estes. 

Keely Briggs cited personal and political reasons for dropping her campaign. Briggs is a councilwoman on the Denton City Council.

Republican Pat Fallon defeated Estes in the District 30 primary in March. His sole opponent now will be Democrat Kevin Lopez.
