Paul Workman and Holly Turner will battle on in the GOP Primary for House District 47. Niether of the two broke the 40 percent level of support in the three way race. Last place finisher David Sewell got 25 percent of the vote. The runoff is April 13th. The winner there will take on Democratic state Rep. Valinda Bolton in the November general election.
This southwest Travis County district includes some of the area's most affluent suburbs but has also been home to some headline-making white-collar job cutbacks. Bolton first won here in 2006 and was narrowly re-elected in 2008.
