First, politicians must take a chance and relinquish their current seats while having a viable and attractive platform to run for an higher office. While running for a new office and holding a current office, they are short-changing the electorate that voted for them.
Second, Pete Sessions fears the loss of a Senate seat due to a special election should Kay Bailey Hutchison vacate her Senate seat. Again we see partisan politics trump statesmanship and the will of the electorate.
He works for us -- not the other way around.
