Wichita Falls voters will have options in the upcoming primary to select a Republican candidate for Texas governor.
On Thursday evening, Lisa Fritsch, a conservative running for the Republican nomination was in Texoma talking to voters.
Fritsch was in Wichita Falls talking to a group of Texomans during a Wichita Falls Tea Party meeting.
She says she was inspired to run because she fears the Republican party is in trouble.
In addition, Fritsch says her party faces a crisis losing key demographics, like women and minorities, who are losing faith in their party.
She says her goal is to talk to as many Texans as possible to let them know they have options against her main competitor and Wichita Falls native, Attorney General Greg Abbott.
"At the end of the day, people need to select the best candidate for 2014 who can beat Wendy Davis and I believe that that candidate is me and that's largely why I'm in the race," Fritsch says. "We no longer have to accept the obvious choice and select candidates based on the baton being passed and I think that makes the race exciting. I think people will be excited that there's a candidate like for them to select in the primary."
Fritsch says her campaign will focus on a bold immigration reform, target areas affected by poverty and improving children's education.
