For those of you who do not know, East Texas has a brand new Congressional District. It is Congressional District 36. This District is very Republican and there is no incumbent so that means the candidates are all new. This new district is not really being challenged in this big redistricting mess so it SHOULD stay the same after the Redistricting Battle is over. A picture of this new CD 36 is below. It includes the east part of Harris County, Liberty County, Orange County, Hardin County, Polk County, Tyler County, Jasper County, and Newton County
I am already pretty sure about who I will be voting for, but I didn't want to publicly say who I am supporting until after the redistricting mess was sorted out, and I wanted to wait until after this local congressional forum.
Everyone needs to go to this forum in order to see all the candidates and be informed about who they should vote for when we go vote (whenever that might be)
The forum will be in Silsbee, TX at the High School at 7pm. It is being put on by the Hardin County Republican Women.
Here is the information:
