Watson: Arrington does not represent district

Posted: Updated:

The Democrat running for the congressional seat that represents Lubbock and Abilene says Congressman Jodey Arrington does not represent his district.

Tom Watson is an attorney from Abilene running to unseat the incumbent Republican. He says Congressman Arrington only appeals to donors and is not putting West Texas first.

Watson cites energy production in the region as one example. He says wind and solar energy produced on the South Plains should stay here.

"Now, I know there are other people who need the energy, but we need to be sure West Texas is taken care of first," Watson said. "Because, if we have the energy sources, then we can attract more businesses, more jobs and that's what West Texas needs."

No other Democrats filed for this primary.
