At least four candidates say they’re running for the District 13 House seat opened up as Lois Kolkhorst, R-Brenham, moves
to the Senate. Kolkhorst, who won a special election earlier this month to fill Comptrollerelect Glenn Hegar’s seat, was
sworn in as District 18’s new senator on Dec. 22. Governor Rick Perry promptly set a special election for Jan. 13 to replace
her in the House.
