Former Congressman Pete Sessions represented the Dallas area for 22 years until his defeat last November. Now, he is testing the waters to run again, potentially seeking a re-match with freshman Rep. Colin Allred (D-Dallas). But, he may not be alone in the Republican primary if he does run.
Stories are surfacing that former Florida Congressman Allen West will soon announce his own candidacy for this Texas seat. Mr. West moved to Dallas after losing his Florida seat to head the National Center for Public Analysis, which has since gone out of existence. Therefore, it is possible we could well see a Republican primary between two staunch conservative ex-Congressmen.
Rep. Allred unseated Mr. Sessions 52-46% meaning a vote margin of almost 18,000. Therefore, the GOP faces an uphill battle in this Dallas metropolitan district next year.
