Rep. Ralph Hall will serve into his 90s if re-elected
(Ft. Worth Star-Telegram) WASHINGTON – There is no safe haven in politics, even for the oldest member of Congress, as U.S. Rep. Ralph Hall, R-Rockwall, 89, found out this year.
Hall is facing two opponents on Election Day after facing down two challengers and outside money in the primary last May.
Hall is more relaxed, but only a little, now, than he was during his primary challenge, when he decided to prove his fitness by jumping out of an airplane. Last month, he decided to get voters’ attention by riding an elephant at the Fannin County GOP picnic.
