    since apparently Hall hinted at retirement multiple times in the last 10 years, while still running until he turned 88.

    I think Hall is one of the Congressmen who'll try his best to stay in office until he passes. Then Texarkana gets a shot at trying to win TX4 back from Rockwall.

    And no, Paul Sadler doesn't live in TX4, he lives in TX1 (where the ideal Dem would be from Marshall (different TV market, Gohmert did 6% worse in HarrisonCo than in SmithCo), and where the ideal Dem would still lose 70/30)

    But Ralph Hall's going nowhere and the Rs don't really have any reason to primary him. And Hall's 2012 opponent ran worse in her home county than she did in the entire district.

    The Republican Party isn't a party of small government, it's a party of a government for the few. @bhindepmo
