Republican Michael Cloud, Democrat Eric Holguin and Libertarian Daniel Tinus are already on the General Election ballot for the 27th District Congressional race in November, but there is now an independent newcomer, James Duerr.
James Duerr who ran as a Republican for the district seat in 2010, has been collecting signatures to get on the November ballot and succeeded in getting 500 votes. Running as an independent, Duerr has served previously on the Del Mar Board of Regents, a nonpartisan board.
Duerr’s Facebook page states, “I wish to be a Public Servant (Not a Politician) serving the needs of the Great State Of Texas for the Congressional District 27… I need your support to put Texas Values in Washington DC.”
Texas’ 27th Congressional District is located in the southern portion of the state. The district includes Aransas, Calhoun, Jackson, Lavaca, Matagorda, Nueces, Refugio, Victoria, and Wharton counties and some parts of Bastrop, Caldwell, Gonzales, and San Patricio counties. The General Election will take place in November.
