Two area representatives have announced their candidacy for re-election next year. State Representative John Frullo announced he will run for the Texas House of Representatives in District 84. He authored four House bills and sponsored four Senate bills which passed this past year.

Congressman Randy Neugebauer announced today that he will run for re-election as well. He is a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives seat in the 19th District of Texas. He currently serves in several other positions as well, including the 5th highest republican member of the House Agriculture committee and Assistant Republican Whip. Below is his full statement included in the release today.

"We are at a crossroads in our nation's history. We can continue to take the easy path of out-of-control government spending and huge budget deficits, or we can take the harder, but necessary, road which leads our country back to fiscal solvency and responsibility. To me, the path is clear. There is only one choice. We MUST get America's fiscal house back in order so that our children and grandchildren are not left with the debt our generation could not control. I wake up every day thinking about how this must be accomplished.

I ask voters of the 19th District of Texas to let me continue this critical job on their behalf. It is an honor to serve the people of the 19th District and I ask constituents to renew my contract and allow me to continue to be their advocate for conservative ideals and principles in Congress. I greatly value and appreciate their support and I once again ask for their vote."
