Lawrence backs out of running for Eversole’s seat

And we’re back where we started.

Houston Councilwoman Toni Lawrence has decided she won’t run against Jerry Eversole for the Harris County Precinct 4 Commissioner’s seat.

“I did talk to Jerry on Tuesday and told him I was not going to run against him,” Lawrence said today. “I’m staying out of the race.”


Lawrence said she never intended to seek the office if Eversole campaigned again.

“We have a lot of mutual friends, we really do, and it was really tough on a lot of those mutual friends,” Lawrence said. “It was putting pressure on those people of who they were going to support and what they were going to do.”

So much for that. I just hope a halfway decent Democratic candidate takes on Eversole, if only so that someone can challenge him on the whole FBI investigation thing. Not too much to ask, is it?
