SD31: Amarillo restaurateur and former Muleshoe Mayor Victor Leal told the Amarillo Globe-News’s Robert Stein that he is considering challenging Sen. Kel Seliger (R-Amarillo) in the Republican primary. Leal unsuccessfully sought the 2010 Republican nomination for what was then an open HD87 seat, losing to now-Rep. Four Price (R-Amarillo), 55%-45%.

Leal raised nearly $240K for that race. His largest contributors included the late Houston homebuilder Bob Perry ($65K), the Texas Restaurant Assoc. PAC ($21K), Fort Worth restaurateur Bobby Cox ($15K), Amarillo businessman Alex Fairly ($5K), San Antonio businessman James Leininger ($5K) and Irving businessman Robert Rowling ($5K).
