Former County Commissioner and current Texas State Rep. Matt Shaheen won’t be running for State Senate, our sources tell us.
The Senate post is currently held by Van Taylor, who is expected to run for retiring Sam Johnson’s seat in the U.S. Congress.
With Shaheen staying in the House, Dallas County GOP Chair Phillip Huffines has a clear path for the Republican nomination in the District 8 race for State Senate.
Expect an announcement later this week.
Shaheen lives in Plano and represents District 66.
