Some familiar names fall in place for a potentially turbulent Texas House election cycle

Today’s announcement that Chair Phillips will not seek re-election puts the number of open seats in the House at six

With the threat of an immediate special session in the rear view, election season is on. So far, a number of names that will be familiar to voters in various parts of the state have declared their candidacies in the six open seats in the Texas House.

Republicans hold all six with varying degrees of service. Four of the open seats are in North Texas, which could further rock the state’s main hotbed of Republican intraparty fighting.
