    The Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives James A. Jimmy Turman today announced at the Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor.  In announcing his candidacy, he said:
    I have today announced as a Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor.  I have withheld announcing earlier because of the vital work of the special session.  I feel the experience, training, and serious responsibilities as President Officer of the Texas House of Representatives particularly qualify me for Presiding Officer of the Texas Senate.
    During this campaign I will earnestly solicit support of all Texans and just as earnestly strive to merit that support.  My record as Presiding Officer of the Texas House with its complex rules has been one of fairness and firmness.  I will pursue that very same course if elected to preside over the Texas Senate.
