John Culberson hoping to to keep his seat in District 7.

"District 7 voters are too well informed to be fooled to elect a liberal Democrat," said Culberson while he was campaigning at Rummel Creek Elementary. "Everytime I have a competitive Democrat come in and try to flip this district, they always outspend me. But nobody's going to outwork me. Nobody is going to convince Republican voters to vote for a liberal Democrat."

Culberson is gathering with supporters Tuesday at Sylvia's Enchilada Kitchen on Eldridge Parkway.
