Rep. Craig Eiland

Representative Craig Eiland (D-Galveston) announced in a personal privilege speech on the House floor last night that he will not seek re-election. “I’m not saying I’m not going to try and come back,” Eiland said, and stated it was time for him to be a good husband, a good father and a good lawyer – in that order.

HD 23 is estimated to be a 50/50 R/D district. 2012 challenger Wayne Faircloth (R-Galveston) is expected to consider a run for this seat in 2014 but no announcements have been made at this time.
