Morrison Won't Run for Re-election

State Rep. Geanie Morrison, R-Victoria, won't seek re-election. The seven-term legislator told her hometown paper, the Victoria Advocate, that the court-drawn redistricting maps made another run difficult.

State Rep. Geanie Morrison, R-Victoria, won't seek re-election.

The seven-term legislator told her hometown paper, the Victoria Advocate, that the court-drawn redistricting maps — which put her and state Rep. Todd Hunter, R-Corpus Christi, in the same district — made another run difficult.

Hunter has already filed for re-election.

“It has been an honor and a privilege to serve the people of the Crossroads area for more than a decade," she told the paper. "Unfortunately, the actions of a federal court have made it no longer possible for me to serve an important area of the state that I have proudly served since 1999."

Morrison is the 27th state representative, and the 20th Republican, to say she won't seek another term next year.
