Rep. Ralph Hall Announces Nov. Election His Last

November's election will be Congressman Ralph Hall's last.

The Rockwall Democrat says he will not run in 2004, but still feels good about his job and his health, and is eager to return for a final term. This November, Hall faces Longview attorney John Graves.

If he wins, Hall will be 81 when the term is complete. Regardless, he says it'll be time for those who have supported him through the years to run for congress. Hall's district stretches from Sherman in the northwest down through Rains, Van Zandt, Smith and Gregg counties.
