In a Facebook post yesterday, former San Marcos Mayor Susan Narvaiz said she filed to run for U.S. Congress because it was “unconscionable” to let U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett win a tenth term without opposition.
Here is her statement:

Yesterday, I filed for the Republican nomination for U.S. Congress in the 35th District of Texas.
I made the decision to run again, after prayerful consideration and careful deliberation, knowing that any re-match with Lloyd Doggett would be viewed as an uphill battle. However, I concluded that I must run in this election, because I believe that it is unconscionable and, in fact, a moral failure of our system, if we allow incumbents like my opponent to go unchallenged in any general election, especially when many of his claims in the previous campaign have been proven to be so false.
His support of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, known as Obama Care, has lost all credibility under the spotlight of reality. America is watching this policy unravel, at the expense of the hardworking middle class and the uninsured, the very people he convinced he was helping and protecting.
To make this case to the voters of the 35th District of Texas, I decided to put my name in nomination for the Republican nominee for Congress. The voters deserve a competitive race for Congress, and I intend to provide that campaign to them.
