2024 elections: Who will run in Texas's 12th congressional district now that Republican Kay Granger is not running for re-election

The gerrymandered 12th congressional district packs and cracks Fort Worth.   Trump won 58.3% of the vote in 2020.

The Hill,  11/1/2023
Granger, 80, was first elected to the House in 1997 after serving as the mayor of Forth Worth. She was the first woman to represent Texas in the House and the first female mayor of Forth Worth. The district leans conservative and is expected to remain in GOP hands after the 2024 election.

So far, 3 Republicans and no Democrats have announced that they are running to succeed Granger.  (Screenshot from same Ballotpedia link as above.)

Other dropouts:
Debbie Lesko. R, AZ-8.  (11/28/2023
Anna Eshoo.  D, CA-16.  (11/29/2023)
Ken Buck.  R,CO-4.  (1128//2023)
