The Daily Texan: Meet six Longhorns running for public office in the upcoming November midterms

Rep. Lloyd Doggett, Class of 1967 / Class of 1970 (J.D.)

Congressman Lloyd Doggett has been a member of the U.S. House of Representatives for 23 years, and is currently running for a 13th term. Doggett was previously a state senator and a Texas Supreme Court justice.

“My involvement at UT as a Business School representative, member of the UT debate team, and later as Student Body President and on the Texas Law Review, played a significant role in my decision to get involved,” Doggett, a Democrat, said in a statement to The Daily Texan. “Consumer and environmental protection and opening up our government for greater public participation were key interests that I advanced to get elected as Texas state senator.”

Thank you, for the encouragement and support, especially throughout these recent weeks. The low turnout does signal how much work remains to ensure Democratic victories in the General Election in November.

There are no unimportant elections and no unimportant races. From the courthouse to the statehouse to the Congress, I will be working for Democratic victories.
