Cooper fails to appear on May 29 ballot

There have been some changes in the lineup of candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives in District 4, as one name was left off the list.

Incumbent Ralph Hall of Rockwall had filed for reelection. He was scheduled to face Dr. John Cooper of Sulphur Springs and Lou Gigliotti of West Tawakoni.

Dr. Cooper, however, was not on the list released by the Texas Republican Party on Saturday. Steve Clark of Heath did appear on the ballot.

The only democrat to file for the District 4 seat was VaLinda Hathcox of Sulphur Springs.
