Rep. Burgess Not Seeking Reelection
This is the latest DFW Congressman to say this
In yet another strange twist in Texas politics, Rep. Michael Burgess announced over Twitter/X he wouldn’t seek reelection. After twenty-two years of representing the North Texas district, it is unknown whether Burgess will seek another office, or retire altogether.
For those who have not heard, Rep. Burgess has represented the north-central DFW Metroplex, particularly Denton County, since 2002. During his career, he is most known for backing vaccine databases, bowing to BLM by removing Southern monuments, and being the sole Republican to support lowering the voting age to sixteen.
While this normally would not raise eyebrows, this comes after an abnormally large number of Texas politicians declared career changes. So far, Rep. Kay Granger (R-Fort Worth) also announced she would not seek reelection, Rep. Collin Allred (D-Dallas) decided to run for US Senate, US Rep. Fallon is running for Texas Senate District 30 following State Sen. Drew Springer’s stating he would not seek another term.
We have no idea what is causing this reshuffling, though we hear there are more officials declining reelection, with others jockeying to occupy their places. It is candidate filing season, so get ready for more electoral Twister. Strap in, strap on, and stay tuned.
