Longview, TX — In December of 2002, U.S. Army Reservist Maj. Shirley McKellar’s commander called her and several other people to a secret mission. She was told to prepare the unit for war.
At the same time, Louie Gohmert, the man she is challenging for a seat in the U.S. Congress, was running for office.
McKellar told her story Tuesday evening to about 50 people at the Gregg County Democrat monthly meeting. She is challenging Republican Gohmert for the District 1 U.S. Congressional seat he has held since 2003.
Both candidates are unopposed in their respective primaries and will meet in November.
