DALLAS There's another Staubach pulling out wins in Dallas these days.
Now it's Jennifer Staubach Gates, father of former Dallas Cowboys legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer Roger Staubach.
Staubach Gates won election to the Dallas City Council on Saturday, besting her opponent by a nearly 2-1 margin.
Staubach Gates looks like her mother, Marianne, but competes like her father in pulling out a seemingly improbable victory.
Her opponent, Leland Burk, is an experienced businessman and investor who had the endorsement of the previous two council members from Dallas' District 13.
Yet Staubach, a community volunteer, overcame her lack of experience in the political arena to win overwhelmingly. Of course, the Staubach name doesn't hurt.
"We're going to do great things," Staubach Gates told her supporters, in a report by The Dallas Morning News. "The constituents and voters of District 13 decided they would like a fresh approach and someone who is honest and will work for them."
