STATEMENT BY REPRESENTATIVE RICHARD RAYMOND REGARDING POSSIBLE RUN FOR CONGRESS
"I appreciate Aaron Pena's enthusiasm and potential support, but I have contacted him and told him I will not make any formal decision on running for CD 28, which is currently held by Henry Cuellar, until sometime after the legislative session.
Many people have contacted me and offered to support me and I appreciate it very much. However, I will not run, unless the support is there and I really believe I can win. I will continue to talk with and listen to those who are interested in me running for Congress.
This is an extremely important position and one in which I believe I could make a difference, were I to run and be elected. If you have any comments on this, pro or con, please let me know."
State Representative, District 42
