Walker withdraws election contest

That didn't last long. Losing HD11 candidate Brian Walker has withdrawn his election challenge to State Rep. Chuck Hopson.

State Rep. Chuck Hopson says he's home free. Hopson, D-Jacksonville, says he was notified by Speaker Tom Craddick's office [Monday] afternoon that his November opponent, Republican Brian Walker, has withdrawn his election contest.

"We are pleased that this election has come to a conclusion," said Hopson, first elected to the Texas House in 2000.

One less source of drama for the upcoming session, which didn't need any more of that. Thanks to BOR for the heads up.
