Greg Hill has announced he will be running in the Republican primary for the District 22 Congressional seat. Hill’s announcement comes on the heels of Pete Olson announcing that he will not seek re-election when his term ends in 2020.

Hill is a Brazoria County court-at-law judge and a former Pearland City Council member.

“After much prayer and encouragement from my family and friends in Brazoria, Fort Bend and southeast Harris counties, I am humbled to announce my candidacy for Congress,” Hill said in a press release. “Now more than ever, Congress needs a new generation of leaders who reflect mainstream suburban values, can restore common sense to Washington and will fight to defeat the socialist agenda.”

In the Democratic primary, Derrick Reed, Sri Kulkarni and Nyanza Moore have announced their candidacies.
