Mark Keough

District Outlook
After winning a surprising 2012 primary contest over incumbent Rob Eissler, Steve Toth will seek the SD4 Special Election being held on May 10, 2013 due to the retirement of Senator Tommie Williams. Due to the date conflict with the March primaries, this makes HD15 an open seat in 2014.

Candidates announcing for the newly-opened House seat are pastor and businessman, Mark Keogh, and Bruce Tough, who serves as both a Conroe ISD School Board trustee and The Woodlands Township Board of Directors chairman.
