Oldest serving member of House, Ralph Hall loses in Texas election

AUSTIN Texas (Reuters) - U.S. Representative Ralph Hall of Texas, the oldest serving member of Congress at 91, lost in a Republican primary runoff election on Tuesday, according to media projections.

Hall, 91, was a World War Two veteran who was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1980. He lost to Tea Party-backed challenger, John Ratcliffe, a former U.S. attorney about half his age.
