There is a trigger reaction - U S Representative John Ratcliffe of District 4 was nominated by President Trump and confirmed by Congress as the Director of National Intelligence. When his seat became vacant, Pat Fallon, Texas State Senator, District 30, was selected by the District 30 precinct chairs to replace Ratcliffe on the November 3 ballot. His seat in the Texas Senate is now vacant.
Five Republican candidates have filed to run for the District 30 Senate seat. Those running are Drew Springer, Texas State Rep; Shelley Luther, businesswoman ; Andy Hopper, businessman; Chris Watts, former Mayor of Denton; and Craig Carter, businessman. One Democrat is running for the position.
