U.S. Rep. Ralph Hall, R-Rockwall, running for re-election in 2014, said Friday that he'd make his next term in Congress his last. The 90-year-old World War II veteran, first elected to represent CD-4 in 1980, told the Rockwall Banner-Herald that he'd retire at the end of 114th session of Congress should his constituents vote to keep him in office next November.
"I have had the privilege of serving the people of Rockwall and East Texas for some time," said Hall, who previously served as a Rockwall County judge and a state senator. "I look forward to campaigning for re-election the next couple of months and serving one final term in Congress. There are a number of projects in the district that I believe my seniority and leadership are critical to accomplishing."
Hall faces five fellow Republicans in the March primary and a Libertarian opponent in the November general election.
