Joe Straus Seeks Re-Election

Rep Joe Straus (R) filed papers this past Saturday to run for re-election for HD 121. Straus won the seat after defeating Rose Spector (D) in a run-off. The seat was once held by Elizabeth Ames Jones who vacated the seat after being appointed to the Texas Railroad Commission.

Straus is a more moderate Republican that represents the northeastern part of San Antonio, and he is in a fairly safe seat. Currently Straus has no challengers from either party.

As a side note, this area seems ripe for interesting 2006 politics, as contests are fleshing out for HD 122, CD 21, possibly SD 25, and CD 28.
