Bech Bruun, chairman of the Texas Water Development Board, announced that he will challenge embattled Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Corpus Christi) in the Republican primary. With candidate filing closing today, it appears that Mr. Bruun will be the top Republican challenger to Mr. Farenthold, who is under attack for an earlier taxpayer-paid sexual harassment settlement. If Bruun can amass sufficient campaign resources, this can become a highly competitive nomination campaign. More will be known after the results of today’s filing become public.
