Runoff voters choose Dallas congressman, Austin mayor
DALLAS (AP) — State Rep. Sam Johnson edged fellow Republican Tom Pauken in Saturday’s runoff for the 3rd District seat in Congress, according to complete unofficial returns.
. Election officials said Johnson got 23,990 votes or 52.6 percent of the 45,617 ballots counted with all 179 precincts reporting in Dallas and Collin Counties.
Pauken got 21,627 votes or 47.4 percent for his third narrow loss in a congressional race.
Johnson, of Plano, and Pauken, a Dallas businessman-community activist, topped a field of a dozen special election candidates in balloting May 4. At that time, Pauken got 28 percent of the vote and Johnson polled 20 percent.
Saturday’s election was one of several runoffs scheduled following the municipal elections, including a contest for mayor of Austin which pits former Travis County commissioner Bruce Todd against council member Robert Bamslone.
Computer problems were still delaying Austin’s tabulation at 9:30 p.m., said deputy city clerk Betty Brown.
The 3rd District ranges from the affluent Park Cities through North Dallas to suburban Plano, Richardson and Carrollton. It has been represented by Republicans for more durn a generation.
Hie winner of Saturday’s election replaces Rep. Steve Bartlett, R-Dallas, who resigned to run for mayor of Dallas. That election also had been scheduled for May 4, but was blocked by a federal appeals court considering questions about minority representation on the Dallas City Council.
A recent poll by Hie Dallas Morning News found Johnson slightly ahead of Pauken, bul with 23 percent of voters undecided a little more than one week before the runoff. The telephone survey of 345 active voters was conducted May 7-9. It had an effective margin of error of 5.4 percentage (KiinLs, the News said.
Both men are politically savvy Vieuiain War veterans. Johnson, a career U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, spent seven years as a prisoner of war. Pauken, who enlisted in the Army, was an uilelligence officer.
Johnson lias served in the Texas House since 1984. Pauken lost 1978 and 1980 congressional elections to Democrat Jim Mattox.
Pauken, a columnist and radio commentator, was active in Dallas' council redistricting dispute. J Pinson, softer spoken, has been o| losing Ll. Gov. Bob Bullock's suppo t of a state income tax.
Todd led the race for Austin mayor two weeks ago, getting 26,340 votes,
to Bamslone s 24,322.
Bamslone has said as mayor, his first concern would be to set spending priorities. Todd has said his first priority would be to enact meaningful consolidation of governmental services.
