Mike Gleason on Tuesday became the first Democrat to be elected sheriff in Williamson County in 30 years after defeating embattled incumbent Robert Chody, who outspent him by more than $1 million. Sherri Greenberg, a professor at the University of Texas’ LBJ School of Public Affairs, said several factors helped Gleason win, including the lawsuits against Chody, the changing demographics of Williamson County and the fact that the county’s voters also supported Biden over Trump.
