U.S. Rep. John Carter, R-Round Rock, announced Saturday that he has filed for reelection in Texas’ new 31st Congressional district.

After redistricting, the 31st District now includes parts or all of Williamson, Bell, Burnet, Hamilton, Coryell and Bosque counties.

The district no longer includes Killeen.

Filing for the March 1 primary election began Saturday and goes through 6 p.m. Dec. 13.

Candidates seeking all county, state and federal races in November 2022 are filing for the primary.

Well we no longer have worry about it as Killeen is no longer in his 31st District. But I want to say this, I have written to Congressman Carter about our immigration problem and he never answered me back and the few answers that I got back were wishy washy answers that made no sense at all. So as a conservative, I don't think he 'fit's the bill', but that is only my personal opinion.

I want a real true blue conservative in this chair who really tries to be a Republican, but one that will spend his time working for the good of America, and when his time is up, file out with good graces.I'm for term limits.


Carter claims to support your gun rights, but voted for the National Defense Authorization act which contains a provision allowing gun confiscation from active duty soldiers without due process. His mouth says he supports our gun rights, but his vote says otherwise. He has primary opposition. Vote to protect your gun rights and remove John Carter
