Louis Repa To Run As A Republican, This Time, For County Commissioner Place 4

I missed these from a couple of weeks ago, Another try for Williamson seat, scroll all the way down to the bottom of article:
Two-time Williamson County Commissioners Court candidate Louis Repa intends to run again, this time on the Republican ticket. Repa, a farmer from Granger, said he is switching parties to help his chances of getting elected.

Repa ran as a Democrat against Precinct 4 Commissioner Frankie Limmer, a Republican, in 1998 and 2002 and lost both times. barrios
It just seems wrong to me to change your political party like this just to get elected. There is plenty of precedent for this in Texas (Gramm, Strayhorn, Perry). Also just above this one is the story of Drew Brees' Mom running for the 3rd Court of Appeals.
Austin lawyer Mina Brees, a Democrat, is running for the 3rd Court of Appeals seat held by David Puryear, her law firm announced in a letter to colleagues this week.

Brees, of Munsch Hardt Kopf & Harr, is a former president of the Austin Bar Association, formerly the Travis County Bar Association. She received the association's 2005 professionalism award for legal ethics and professionalism.

She specializes in reorganization, creditors rights and bankruptcy litigation, according to the firm's Web site. She is also the mother of two grown children, including Drew Brees, a quarterback for the NFL's San Diego Chargers.

The 3rd Court, one of 14 intermediate appellate courts, hears civil and criminal disputes from 24 counties, including Travis, Williamson, Bastrop and Hays.
