Rep. Pat Fallon (R-Texas) will seek reelection to his solidly Republican Texas seat in the U.S. House, a spokesperson confirmed Tuesday, seemingly reversing plans to attempt a return to the state Senate in Austin.
The move, which came as a surprise to many even in his own party, came one day after Fallon had filed to seek election to his former seat in the Texas state Senate. That apparent move even won a full endorsement from GOP Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick.
Fallon only arrived in the House in 2021. His district gave former President Donald Trump 74 percent of the vote in 2020.
