TYLER, Texas — Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, has announced he will officially run for Texas Attorney General against incumbent Republican Ken Paxton.
Gohmert made the decision after asking 100,000 citizens to donate $100 each to reach his goal of $1 million by Nov. 19.
He also launched an exploratory website on Nov. 9, but said the proper documents had "been filed to seek donations."
