Robert West of Cooper has announced that he is running for the Republican nomination for the 4th District Seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. That seat became vacant when former congressman John Ratcliff was appointed Director of National Intelligence. Also running for the nomination are Ratcliff’s former Chief of Staff, Jason Ross, and Atlanta, TX mayor Travis Ransom. It should be a crowded field. The winner will face Democrat Russell Foster of Sherman and Libertarian Lou Antonelli of Clarksville in the November General Election.
