From Texas Political Almanac
Who & Where
On July 8, 2013, Representative Stefani Carter announced her plans to seek the GOP nomination for an open Railroad Commission seat. During several months she went through Texas running for Railroad Commissioner. Carter was unable to raise money for her race and by October 22nd, Carter had dropped those plans and opted, instead, to file for re-election. Her decision was highly criticized by several key conservative leaders and legislators at the Texas Legislature. The pause on her House seat, however, opened up a good deal of interest in the seat by other challengers. Political Activist Adryana Boyne leads the names already filed for 2014 as the most well known candidate among conservative circles at state and national level. Former Dallas City Council member Linda Koop also filed for the seat. An injured Veteran from Arkansas, Sam Brown, who moved to District 102 about a year ago, also filed for the race. Brown is the only one with not experience whatsoever in politics or conservative issues. George Clayton is the first and only Democrat who has filed for the race.
