‘House Party’ draws candidates
Eight out of 10 Republican congressional candidates have RSVP’d to attend, or have said they will try to attend, “The House Party” sponsored by Texas House District 60 candidate and Granbury lawyer Kellye SoRelle.
The House Party will be held next Saturday – Nov. 16 – at Brantley’s, located at 2650 Camp Crucis Court in Granbury.
The event is a chance for voters to meet face to face – during one evening, and at one location – with candidates for the state House District 60 and federal District 11 races. Discussions will take place outdoors around fire pits.
Gates will open at 6 p.m. and there will be no cover charge.
Attendees will be able to purchase food from food trucks, participate in silent and live auctions, and enjoy a free concert by entertainer Andrew Carman.
SoRelle is challenging state Rep. Mike Lang, R-Granbury, in his re-election bid. Palo Pinto County rancher and veterinarian Glenn Rogers is also a candidate in that race.
U.S. Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Midland, is retiring at the end of his current term. Of the 12 candidates who are hoping to win that congressional seat, 10 are Republicans.
Here is a breakdown of the responses SoRelle received (or didn’t receive) by press time Friday after sending invitations more than two weeks ago:
U.S. House District 11 candidates planning to attend: Robert Tucker, Wacey Alpha Cody, Ned Luscombe, J.D. Faircloth and Wesley Virdell.
U.S. House District 11 candidates listed as ‘tentative’ but hoping to attend: August Pfluger, Brandon Batch, Ross Schumann.
Responded as unable to attend: Rogers (House District 60 candidate).
No response by press time: Lang, Jamie Berryhill (congressional candidate) and J. Ross Lacey (congressional candidate).
