Texas Ag. Commission runoff opponent to be determined

Runoff election set for May 27

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Sid Miller has advanced to a runoff for the Republican nomination for Texas agriculture commissioner.

His opponent in the runoff had not yet been determined Tuesday night.

Miller is a former state representative from Stephenville. He attracted statewide attention for his conservative views in the Legislature, including passing a bill that requires doctors to perform a sonogram before an abortion.

The agriculture commissioner is responsible for promoting Texas products while regulating food products for safety.

The runoff election will be held May 27.
