WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — 30th District State Senator Pat Fallon appears to be considering a second bid for a national seat.
The Federal Election Commission lists him and six other Republicans as filing campaign committees for the 4th Congressional District Seat that became vacant when Rep. John Ratcliffe became President Trump’s Director of National Intelligence.
Fallon’s state senate district lies within the 4th Congressional District which sprawls across north and northeast Texas north of the Metroplex and takes in Collin and Denton counties.
Fallon also considered challenging incumbent U.S. Senator John Cornyn in the March Primary but later said he would not make that difficult race, and instead remain in the Texas Senate.
Republican precinct conventions will select the nominee to place on the November ballot on Aug. 8.
We have reached out to Fallon’s office for a comment and are waiting a response.
