News from The Hill Oldest congressman forced into primary runoff By Cameron Joseph
News from The Hill Oldest congressman forced into primary runoff
Rep. Ralph Hall (R-Texas), the oldest member of Congress, has been forced into a potentially perilous runoff in his primary against former U.S. Attorney John Ratcliffe (R).
The Associated Press called that the race will head to a May runoff, with Hall leading Ratcliffe by 45 percent to 30 percent with 27 percent of precincts reporting.
A runoff could be treacherous for the 90-year-old congressman. Ratcliffe has already given his campaign close to a half-million dollars and is promising to donate more, while Hall, caught by surprise in the race, has very little money in the bank.
