Native American Seeks to Flip Texas’ 3rd District
The President and CEO of Holisso Hakv Inc., a mergers and acquisitions advisory consulting firm, has announced his run for Congress. J.D. Colbert, a citizen of the Chickasaw Nation, kicked off his campaign on Monday to represent the 3rd congressional district in Texas. Voters there haven't elected a Democrat in 50 years, but the banker and business leader is counting on a shift in demographics to send him to DC. “America is in the crucible of seismic demographic transition. The impending death of the White majority and the rise of a more diverse New America is the fundamental cause of divided America and is the basis of the divisive cultural Wars,” said Colbert, who is also a descendant of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation. The district is currently represented byCongressman Sam Johnson (R-TX), who is retiring. At least three candidates besides Colbert have announced their intentions to run. More here.
