Its political season in Texas and in Lubbock. 
Four individuals in this area announced they would be running for public office in the coming election. 

Democrat hopeful Neal Marchbanks already announced that he would be challenging Neugebauer's seat in the coming election. Even calling him out during the recent government shut down.

But today, one of Neugebauers' own put his name in the hat. 
Republican Donald May confirmed in a press conference that he plans to challenge the incumbent in the GOP Primaries for District 19. 

Late this afternoon we also received word from Texas Tech Regent John Steinmetz, who has reportedly been considering a challenge of Congressman Neugebauer.
Steinmetz says he still has not made a decision, that he is still considering it. But that he appreciates the support he's been getting.

Texas House Representative John Frullo announced his re-election, saying:
"It's an honor to serve district 84 and lubbock county as your state representative...
We faced many challenges during the 83rd legislative session." 

In addition... Hale county's First Assistant District Attorney Chris Brown says he plans to run for judge for Hale, Castro and Swisher counties. 
He says: "The support I have received to run for district judge has been humbling. Over the years, I have built a reputation of being a tough but fair prosecutor.  I plan to bring those same values and convictions to the job of district judge." 

Now with the exception of Marchbanks, these men we mentioned are all GOP members. 
We reached out to Lubbock Democratic headquarters to see who might be running. They say there are potential candidates, however they are not ready to announce just yet.
