Rep. Ralph Hall makes campaign stop in Texarkana

Posted: Updated:
Texarkana, Texas -

The oldest serving member of Congress is ready for what he says is his final campaign challenge.
    
Texas Representative Ralph Hall made a stop in Texarkana area Thursday morning.
    
The 90-year old Congressman is now hoping his 33-year bond with the 4th district will win him another term in office.

Congressman Ralph Hall urged employees of Day and Zimmerman Lone Star Ammunition Plant to vote for him next month.
    
The 17-term Republican incumbent say he's nervous about the upcoming race.
    
While his five primary opponents have been touring the district, Hall says he's been on the floor of Congress.

"I'm trying to make up for the time I've lost to the guys who are asking for my job," said Hall.  
    
Rep. Hall says his opponents are honorable people, but he has work he wants to finish in Washington.

"I want to do something on Obamacare, I've voted against it 50 times, said Hall. "It's going to fall of its own and I want to be there when it does."
 
Hall, who will turn 91-years old in a couple of months, says the country will be all right if some changes are made.

"I want to be there, working as a member of Congress from the best district in Texas, working to get a good president, working to take the Senate back, and hold the House where we have it," said Hall.

The Congressional District 4 covers about 16 Texas counties bordered by Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma.  
    
Voters will head to the polls for the primary election on March 4th.
    
If a runoff is needed that would be May 27th.
     
That primary could be tantamount to election, the only other candidate is a lesser-known libertarian who will face a daunting task to overcome the Republican candidate.
