Houston council member Greg Travis announced he would seek the Republican nomination for HD133 (Likely R), the seat being vacated by Rep. Jim Murphy (R-Houston). Travis was first elected to the council in 2015 and re-elected in 2019. His council district nearly perfectly matches HD133 except the latter includes four enclave municipalities and excludes the portion of Travis’s district which is east of Interstate 610.

Already in the HD133 race are former council member Bert Keller and Houston attorneys Shelly Barineau and Mano DeAyala. As far as we can tell, no Democrat has taken a formal step toward entering the race.
