We don’t have Congressional districts yet but we do have potential Congressional candidates.
Cameron County District Attorney Armando Villalobos is considering seeking higher office.
Villalobos told Action 4 News he is considering running for congress and has officially formed an exploratory committee.
The Cameron County District Attorney created an event on his personal Facebook page announcing a reception for his new exploratory committee.
That event is scheduled for tonight at 7, in case anyone reading this is in the vicinity. Villalobos is at least the third possible Democratic candidate for a district to be named later. There’s a Some Dude sending out press releases for CD07, and there’s former Fort Bend County Treasurer candidate KP George looking at CD22, and likely others of which I am not currently aware. Whether Villalobos might wind up in a newly created district, in the same district as freshman Blake Farenthold, or in a bizarre fajita-strip district with an incumbent Democrat remains to be seen. I don’t know anything about him, but he does seem like the kind of person who could have the juice to make a real campaign; one wonders how much considerations like that will affect the eventual map. Anyone know anything more about Mr. Villalobos?
