AUSTIN, TX Katz, owner of Katz's Deli, said Wednesday that family members in California, Florida and New York would give his campaign "millions." He promised to announce the amount of the donation on Friday. Katz joins former Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle in the March Democratic primary.
