On the Monday edition of Lubbock’s First News on KFYO, as the program was coming to an end, Carl Tepper, the Lubbock County Republican Party chairman, was asked if he thought Delwin Jones would run for state rep again.

"I think he’s going to run again," Tepper said.  " That’s his nature.  He runs.  He’s been doing it 40 years.  Why would he change now?  I know he’s told people he will run again.  Look, it’s a free country.  The guy has been a state rep for many, many years.  If he wants to run again, he gets to.”

Jones will turn 90 in two years.
