Democratic Nominee Thierry to Replace Rep. Borris Miles
Tuesday, August 9, 2016 6:55 AM

Attorney Shawn Thierry will be the Democratic nominee in the general election in Harris County’s House District 146. The current officeholder, Borris Miles, was named the Senate candidate for the seat that will be vacated by Rodney Ellis.

Thierry, a former judicial candidate, won the nomination over Harris County schools official Erica Lee Carter, the daughter of U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee.

Ellis decided not to run for reelection after his name was already placed on the ballot. That set off the unusual chain of events that had Democratic precinct chairs selecting the nominees for Ellis’ seat and then again for Miles’ seat.
