Tom Bean salon owner and former SD30 candidate Shelley Luther is planning to announce campaign plans on Monday after she re-authorized her campaign account but did not specify a state office she might seek. Tom Bean is located with SD30 (Safe R), which is held by Sen. Drew Springer (R-Muenster), and HD62 (Safe R), which is held by Rep. Reggie Smith (R-Val Alstyne). Luther lost a 2020 special runoff election to Springer, 56%-44%, for which she raised nearly $2M. She could also run statewide.

RRC (Likely R): Houston oil and gas management consultant Tom Slocum announced he would challenge Comm. Wayne Christian (R) in the primary.

The Texas Oil & Gas Assoc. PAC endorsed Christian.

SD7 (Likely R): Houston resident Mike Graham established a campaign committee for a potential challenge of Sen. Paul Bettencourt (R-Houston).
