In a tweet late Thursday night, Alex Miler, the Republican nominee who lost to incumbent Democrat Lina Hidalgo in the November race for the Harris County judgeship, said she would contest the results of the contest after reviewing available public data.
“After reviewing all publicly available data, I have decided to apply to run in the light of the post-election assessment provided by Harris County Election Commission Administrator Clifford Tatum,” Miler. said in a statement attached to her tweet. “It is unforgivable that after two months the public did not know whether and to what extent the voices were suppressed. Far from a “success” as described in the report, there were significant operational problems throughout the election period. A day that casts doubt on whether the counties’ failures have robbed voters of the right to vote.”
