Former one-term Houston Congressman Chris Bell (D) announced that he is forming a US Senate exploratory committee. If he decides to run, Mr. Bell will oppose retired Army helicopter pilot and 2018 congressional candidate M.J. Hegar for the Democratic nomination. The winner opposes three-term Sen. John Cornyn (R) in the general election.
Since losing his House seat in 2004, Mr. Bell has attempted political comebacks in races for Governor, state Senate, and Mayor of Houston and lost each time.
