The Ralph Hall freefall

ROCKWALL - Ahead of Tuesday’s primary election, 89-year-old Congressman Ralph Hall took time to skydive over the weekend to celebrate Memorial Day.

Hall was guided by an instructor on the dive, which took place over his hometown of Rockwall. He says the jump is in honor of all of those who have served our country. 

Hall, who is seeking a 17th term in office, faces fellow republicans Steve Clark and Lou Giglotti in Tuesday’s Republican Party Primary. Hall represents Texas’ 4th District, which includes more than a dozen Northeast Texas counties.

KETR will provide live election coverage from races around the region beginning just after the polls close Tuesday at 7 p.m.

If Hall's skydive sounds familiar among seasoned Texas politicians, you may be thinking of former President George H.W. Bush, who accomplished the feat several times. Here he is in 2009 for his 85th birthday.
