Palestine businessman Cody Harris announces for House seat held by Chairman Cook

As Thomas McNutt, who has roots in Dallas, racks up endorsements, a new player enters the battlefield; Cody Harris says, “As our rural representation in Austin continues to decline, it’s critical that we have a representative who is from here”

It's looking more like a crowded field may take shape in the GOP primary to succeed retiring Texas House State Affairs Committee Chairman Byron Cook, R-Corsicana.

On Tuesday, a business leader from Palestine who works in real estate, Cody Harris, announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for House District 8 "after receiving strong encouragement from grassroots and community leaders across the district," per his campaign.
