Bio

Born in Austin, Texas on October 6, 1946, Doggett received both his bachelor's degree in business and Juris Doctor degree from the University of Texas at Austin. His political career began in 1973, when he was elected to the Texas State Senate, serving until 1985. In 1984 he lost the US Senate election to Phil Gramm by a margin of 59%-41%. Later in 1989 he became both a justice on the Texas Supreme Court and an adjunct professor at the University of Texas Law School, his alma mater.

Congressional career

He was elected to the US House of Representatives in 1994. In the years following his first re-election, Doggett would consistently win around 85% of the vote, facing only Libertarian opponents. Redistricting by the Texas Legislature in 2003 caused him to seek re-election in the newly redrawn 25th congressional district, which he won by a 2-to-1 margin.

2006 elections

No major candidates announced their intentions to contest Doggett’s seat in the November 2006 election. (See U.S. congressional elections in 2006) [1] Doggett retained his seat.
