There are three candidates going at it in the GOP primary, and since there is no Democrat on the ballot, this primary is (more or less) winner take all.

This GOP primary has two Amarillo area candidates incumbent Kel Seliger and Victor Leal. Then there is Mike Canon of Midland, who ran against Seliger in the 2014 GOP primary, and got 47.56 percent of the vote.

The aforementioned district includes almost every county in the Texas Panhandle, excluding Childress County. The district configuration then does a hook around most of the Lubbock area (picking up far western counties such as Bailey, Cochran and Yoakum counties) and then juts back out to nab the Midland Odessa area.

District 31 resembles a crudely drawn figure.

The question is why? Why should Amarillo and Midland/Odessa be represented by the same state senator? Especially when the district goes around and avoids the Lubbock area?

There are many who claim this district was gerrymandered and maybe there is a degree of truth to this claim.

Let assume (for the sake of argument) this is the case, that Texas Senate/District 31 was created out of political partisanship, primarily Republican subterfuge.

Considering that the state of Texas is arguably the reddest state in the nation, and that West Texas, in particular, has been a conservative stronghold for decades, why resort to gerrymandering a district in an area that would more than likely vote Republican anyway?

It is roughly 250 miles from Amarillo to Midland yet these two areas are represented by the same state senator.

For the time being, this is the way it is candidates from Amarillo and Midland battling out for a state Senate seat. The question is why does it have to be this way?
