It is likely that Sparks will be competing for the Republican nomination in a district that includes Midland, Odessa and Amarillo. That district is expected to be comparable to the makeup of the current district – Texas Senate District 31. The current officeholder is Kel Seliger, a Republican from Amarillo.
In the endorsement of Kevin Sparks, Trump states, “Kevin Sparks of the Great State of Texas is running against RINO Texas Senator Kel Seliger, who is not helpful to our great MAGA movement, and, in fact, seems like the Texas version of Mitt Romney (and that’s not good!). Kevin is a businessman, loves the people of Midland and West Texas, must WIN in order to protect our Oil and Gas Workers, defend our Southern Border, our Military and our Vets, and fight for our America First policies. Kevin Sparks has my Complete and Total Endorsement.”
Sparks and Stormy Bradley of Big Spring have announced their intention to run for a state senate seat. A primary is expected to take place in the spring and the general election will take place in November 2022. Seliger has not announced his intentions. Trump has a record of endorsing prior to primary elections in West Texas. While president, he endorsed August Pfluger in the Republican Primary for the District 11 congressional seat.
The reported endorsement of Sparks happened less than a week after Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick was in Midland, stating the need for a state senator that was in the oil and gas industry. Trump has endorsed Patrick for lieutenant governor in 2022.
