District 19 Congressional Candidates Begin Campaigning In Lubbock

We're still months away from voters deciding the District 19 Congressional Race, but on Monday, the two main candidates were out in the district.

The War on Terror and the Congressional Agenda for 2004 were highlights of Randy Neugebuaer's talk to the Rotary Club. The current District 19 Congressman also spoke about recent layoffs at the Excel Plant in Plainview due to Mad Cow Disease and negotiations with Japan to lift a ban on U.S. beef.

"We grow the highest quality beef in the world and theres a great demand for our products. We just got to ensure the rest of the world we have a safe product," said Congressman Neugebauer.

Running against Neugebauer is Congressman Charlie Stenholm. He spent the afternoon speaking to students at Texas Tech. Stenholm chose to run in District 19 after redistricting forced him out of District 17. Monday, he told us what needs to happen for him to win in his new district.

"I obviously have to attract the independents and those that may have voted Republican in the past but are having second thoughts," said Congressman Stenholm.

Both Neugebauer and Stenholm believe water and spending will be key issues this year. Also running for District 19 Congressman is Libertarian Chip Peterson.
