Texas Senate District 28 Candidate Delwin Jones Hospitalized Over the Weekend

Ariel Walden,

Former Texas State Representative, and current Senate District 28 candidate, Delwin Jones (R) was hospitalized over the Labor Day weekend.  KAMC News first reported that Jones was listed in serious condition at Covenant Medical Center in Lubbock.

The 90 year-old Jones made a surprise return to local politics in announcing a run for State Senate earlier this summer.

Last month, in an extended interview with Paul R. Beane, Jones talked about why he re-entered politics. He also said he felt his “name recognition” would give him an advantage over his opponents in the SD 28 Special Election.

Jones’ political career encompassed two stints in the Texas House, the first from 1964-72 and the second from 1988-2010. Current, House District 83 representative, Charles Perry (R) beat Jones in the 2010 Republican Primary for HD 83.

The other candidates running in the SD 28 Special Election is: Jodey Arrington (R), Charles Perry, E.M. Garza (R), Kerry Douglas McKennon (L) and Greg Wortham (D).  Early Voting ends September 5 and Election Day is Tuesday, September 9.

Senate District 28 encompasses 51 counties from Childress to the north, parts of Taylor County to the east, Lubbock and the South Plains to the west and Tom Green County to the South.
