Dallas Salon Owner Who Defied Lockdown Orders Wins Spot In State Senate Run-Off


The Texas Secretary of State’s Office updated it’s election results on Wednesday morning, showing Republicans Shelley Luther and Drew Springer are advancing to a runoff in a special election for a Texas State Senate seat.

Luther became well known when she was jailed for opening her Dallas hair salon during the Coronavirus shutdown. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) even flew over to receive a haircut after she was released from jail.

The CBS affiliate in Dallas/Fort Worth reports that the voting update on Wednesday showed Luther pulled ahead in the election results with 22,135 and Springer at 21,971. (It was initially reported on Tuesday evening she was in second place as seen in the video below.)


The only Democrat among the six-candidate race, Jacob Minter, landed in third place.

The special election is being held after Texas State Sen. Pat Fallon vacated the seat to run for Congress.
