Saying the regular session and three special sessions of the Texas Legislature left him like a seasoned veteran, freshman Rep. Ken King announced Monday he will seek another two-year term in 2014.
“We finished a very productive regular session with several key items yet to be addressed,” King, R-Canadian, said in a statement.
“I have work left to do, which is why I am running for re-election,” part of the statement reads.
King has served in the House Public Education Committee and in the chamber’s Judiciary & Jurisprudence Committee since January. Most recently, Speaker Joe Straus appointed him to the Energy Horizon Institute and to the Energy Council.
So far, no one has come forward to challenge King in the March 4 Republican primary and no Democratic hopeful has announced either. The month-long registration period for the Democratic and Republican primaries begins on Nov. 9.
