Senator Kel Seliger: District 31

Kel Seliger was first elected to the Texas Senate in 2004. Senate District 31 spans 37 counties from the Panhandle to the Permian Basin and includes Amarillo, Midland, Odessa, and Big Spring.

Born in Amarillo and raised in Borger, Senator Seliger is a graduate of Borger public schools and Dartmouth College. He spent 35 years in the steel industry.

Prior to his election to the Senate, Seliger served four terms as Mayor of Amarillo and as a member of the Amarillo City Commission and the Amarillo Civil Service Commission.

He and his wife, Nancy, reside in Amarillo, and have two sons, Jonathan and Matthew and a granddaughter, Collins Gray Seliger.

Kel is considered by many as the "most liberal Republican Senate". His term ends in 2022. Kevin Sparks will take his place.

Texas RINO Traitors Exposed


by The Luke Macias Show (podcast)

See minute 1:06 for comments on Kel Seliger.

"Polling in Texas looks great, RINO’s in Texas are freaking out. Over the last several weeks we have had Betsy Price, Glen Whitley and Kel Seliger all coming out to oppose Dan Patrick. These are all people who I have been told matter for Republicans in the past. These are people who donors have catered to and who we’ve allowed to influence our Party. No more. Polls not only show Republicans leading, but they show Dan Patrick leading the statewide slate. Oh, and we have another drag show in Corpus, but this one is even worse, and on this week’s podcast we discuss why."

Kel Seliger endorses a Texas democrat.
