North Texas’ Hall to become oldest U.S. House member

Rep. Ralph Hall, R-Texas is set to become the oldest member of the U.S. House ever, a few months shy of his 90th birthday.

On Monday Hall, who’s district includes Grayson County, tied North Carolina Rep. Charles Manly Stedman, who died in office in 1930 at 89 years, 7 months and 25 days old. Hall had already become the oldest member ever to cast a vote earlier in December.

Hall recently won re-election to his 17th term from his North Texas district.
