Texas: Jasper Mayor survives recall, two members who lost in recall in November lose again

Jasper Mayor Mike Lout survived a recall by a wide margin,  1,032-536 voters. This was part of the last year's big recall in Jasper, resulting in an interesting lawsuit, and two of three councilmembers kicked out of office.

In the same race, both of the recalled councilmembers tried to regain their seats, and both lost. Raymond Hopson defeated former councilman Willie Lee Land by a vote of 292 to 146 and Mitch McMillon defeated Terrya Norsworthy by a tally of 986 to 578.
