Consol Grad Coming Home to Announce Senate Run

A local son says he's looking to make good on a national level, and he's returning home to kick start that run.

Ray McMurrey, a graduate of A&M Consolidated High School in College Station, will officially get his campaign for the U.S. Senate started at an event at the Lincoln Community Center Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.

The Democrat has most recently been the Social Studies Department Chair at the Gates Foundation Collegiate High School on the Del Mar College Campus in Corpus Christi. He has 17 years of teaching experience.

Before his career got started, McMurrey was Consol's class president in 1984, then went on to Blinn College in Brenham on a tennis scholarship.

McMurrey is currently opposed by former State Representative Rick Noriega for the Democratic nomination.

The winner will advance to the November general election against the winner of the Republican primary. Incumbent John Cornyn is opposed by Larry Kilgore of Mansfield for the GOP nomination.

Cornyn is seeking his second term after defeating former Dallas mayor Ron Kirk in the 2002 general election.
