Wharton businesswoman Debra Medina caught the attention of voters in two televised Republican debates.
Medina supporters are preparing what they hope will be a victory party at Hinze Barbecue in Wharton.
Medina did some last minute campaigning Tuesday in Wharton, Fort Bend and Harris County polling places.
She has called herself the one true conservative in this race -- her grassroots campaign appeals to what she calls the average Texan and has been a relative success, hinging on issues like property taxes, securing the borders, and dividing the powers between state and federal governments.
This is the first time Medina has run for any office, and political pundits say she's garnered a surprising amount of support against two opponents with millions more dollars to spend.
“It's important to me to continue to do that and travel,” Medina said. “I expect I'll be doing that for the next four years… as governor.”
Medina is trailing in the poll but believes those who are ready to see a change in Texas politics will choose her as their candidate.
