Ahead of a previously scheduled Monday announcement, Sen. Royce West (D-Dallas) established a campaign committee to challenge U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R). West’s seat is not up for re-election in 2020, so he will not have to give up his state Senate seat to pursue a federal Senate seat.

RRC: San Marcos river tour company owner Kelly Stone established a campaign committee for a potential challenge of Comm. Ryan Sitton (R) as a Democrat.

HD67: Plano attorney Tom Adair established a campaign committee for a potential challenge of Rep. Jeff Leach (R-Allen) as a Democrat. An active campaign treasurer list from the Ethics Commission shows him running for the 67th Judicial District, but that is in Tarrant Co. and his account type is listed as non-judicial, so this report would appear to be erroneous.
