Williams Moves Races Again to Texas’ 25th District

Former Railroad Commissioner Michael Williams will switch Congressional races for a third time this cycle.
The Republican’s campaign announced Friday that he will run in Texas’ 25th district.

Williams started off the cycle running for retiring GOP Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison’s seat. He announced in June that he would run for the House in the 33rd district instead.

But a fellow Senate candidate, former Secretary of State Roger Williams (R), had the same idea. Several days after Michael Williams’ announcement, Roger Williams said he would also run for the 33rd district.
Instead of running in a primary against Roger Williams, Michael Williams will run in the nearby 25th district, his campaign announced.

Michael Williams likely won’t escape a primary in the 25th though. State Rep. Sid Miller (R) has already expressed interest in running for that seat.

Both House districts include heavily GOP territory, and Republicans expect to win both next year.
