CD7: Houston cancer physician Jason Westin is considering challenging U.S. Rep. John Culberson (R-Houson) as a Democrat.

Beaumont: A candidate filed for two offices on the May 6 ballot has dropped his bid to run for city council. Kevin Reece will instead run for Beaumont ISD trustee, even though he mistakenly filed for a district in which he does not reside. He has 90 days to move into the district if he were elected, per special rules in place for the initial election of a board from single-member districts. Reece’s father was among the trustees ousted during a state takeover several years ago. Meanwhile, another BISD candidate may be ineligible because of a prior felony conviction. Daniel Ozane needs a gubernatorial pardon or other judicial action restoring his eligibility by Friday, which is the deadline to withdraw from the race voluntarily. Three other candidates are running for that seat, including Ozane’s wife.
