Three Republican challengers hoping to unseat incumbent Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) took part in a debate Thursday night.
Participants include Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush, former Texas Supreme Court Justice Eva Guzman and U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX 1st District). Paxton was invited to the debate but declined to participate.
