Allegiance of candidate for Wendy Davis' vacated seat questioned; withdrawal urged

FORT WORTH Five former Tarrant County Democratic Party leaders are asking George Boll a Fort Worth attorney who is running for the Texas Senate 10 seat being vacated by state Sen. Wendy Davis to abandon his bid for the partys nomination.

The former chairs say Boll, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for the post, has voted more often than not as a Republican and belongs on the GOP ballot.

Boll, one of the eight candidates seeking this post, admits he has a mixed voting history but said hes not withdrawing from the race.

I want strongly for the Democrats to hold this seat in November, said Boll, 48, a former Colleyville City Council member. I am not going to step down.

2. No Democrats in Colleyville

If he lives in Colleyville, he is a Republican. There's no Democrats up in that area, it is all red!

My daughter lives in Trophy Club which is in the area to the west of Colleyville, and in the primaries, there is no Democratic place to vote. She had to drive over to Flower Mound so she could vote Democrat.
