Rev. Kyev Tatum, minister, head of the local chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and co-founder of the Black, Brown and Tan Coalition, will officially kick off his campaign to be the Democratic nominee for the newly formed 33rdCongressional District, at 7 pm tonight at the Dock Book Shop, 6637 Meadowbrook Drive in east Fort Worth.
Calling his campaign the “Fight’in 33rd,” Tatum will be up against Fort Worth council member Kathleen Hicks and state representative Marc Veasey, the only announced Democratic candidates for the seat to date. However, there are rumblings that North Side council member Sal Espino is interested as well as lawyer and former county Democratic chair Art Brender. This should be an exciting race.
Too bad for Mr. Tatum, but the Republican Supreme Court is going to give the district back to the Republicans who sliced, diced, and stretched it (along with most of the others) to protect their interests.
He’ll lose handily.
