Sid Miller (Tx House District 59) is NOT running for US House District 25

9 September 2011 at 9:40:07 AM

According to the FW Star-Telegram.

U.S. House District 25: Former Texas Railroad Commissioner Michael Williams, who owns homes in Arlington and Austin, is one of at least nine candidates in this race after U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Austin, indicated that he would run in District 35. Other candidates include Bill Burch of Grand Prairie, a businessman and conservative activist who heads the Grass Roots Institute of Texas; and Wes Riddle of Belton, who founded the Central Texas Tea Party and has made one unsuccessful bid for Congress.

Also, Dianne Costa, a former Highland Village mayor and mediator; Itamar Gelbman, a New York native who grew up in Israel and unsuccessfully ran for Congress last year; Dave Garrison, a former Halliburton and USAA executive who is making his first foray into politics; Brian Matthews of Austin, a businessman; Ralph Pruyn of Cedar Park, a businessman; and Chad Wilbanks, son of Grapevine Mayor Pro Tem Shane Wilbanks and former executive director of the Texas Republican Party.

Not clear to me if all these people are definitely running or have just expressed an interest, besides Michael Williams. So. how many of the above actually live in this district? Michael Williams does not.

P.S. If you don't know who Sid Miller is, think Texas PorkChoppers Bill, and Sonogram Assault Against Pregnant Women bill.
