Lesbian Candidate To Be "Most Powerful Prosecutor In Texas"

The Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund is announcing that their endorsee Rosemary Lehmberg has won the Democratic runoff for District Attorney of Travis County, Texas. With no Republican opponent in the fall election, Lehmberg is now the presumptive winner of the post. Lehmberg has worked in the Travis County district attorney's office for 31 years and has said that she will rarely seek the death penalty in her new position. Travis County includes the capital of Texas, Austin.
