More State House Campaign Speculation

From the Waco Tribune-

The son of former Waco mayor and state Sen. David Sibley is considering running for the Texas House next year, a tall challenge that could pit the 6-foot-8-inch Adam Sibley against a fellow Republican, incumbent state Rep. Charles "Doc" Anderson.

Adam Sibley, 27, told the Tribune-Herald last week he is talking with friends, family and gauging interest about a possible campaign, but had not yet decided whether to run in the Republican primary next spring.

"It is something I'm considering and looking at. It is something I'm thinking about," Adam Sibley said.

This could be Jon Mabry's 'in' to getting back his House seat. For those of y'all that remember, Mabry won in '02 in large part because of an extremely divisive primary between Holt Getterman, Walt Fair, and Charles "Doc" Anderson. And since Mabry really only lost his House seat last year because of his trip to Ardmore, we could see a close race in HD 56 for the third straight election. Here's to hoping this pans out.
