"After being re-elected to the State Senate last November, I am pleased to have drawn a four-year term today on the Senate Floor," Sen. Eltife said. "I look forward to serving the citizens of Senate District 1."
"It is one of the greatest honors of my life to represent Senate District 3 in the Texas Senate, added Senator Robert Nichols. "Regardless of whether I drew a '2' or a '4' today, I would continue to serve my constituents in the same manner and to work diligently for their interests. I look forward to further achievements for our Senate District and state."
These new term lengths will run until another round of redistricting takes effect, which is expected to be in 2022.
