Boenigk faced fellow Republicans Bob Yancy and John Raney. She also faced Libertarian Joshua Baker and Democrat Judy Webb LeUnes. Since no candidate received a majority of the vote on November 8, the top two vote getters--Yancy and Raney--proceeded to a runoff election.[3][4]

Campaign themes

On her 2011 campaign site, Boenigk discusses her campaign:

  • "“Fred Brown is leaving some pretty big shoes to fill in our Texas Capitol, but I know that I have the background and experience needed to hit the ground running and to be a strong, conservative leader for Brazos County in the legislature. I am working hard to earn your vote and support in my race for State Representative. I hope that you will join our campaign team."
