SMITH COUNTY, Texas — Nathaniel Moran secured the GOP nomination for U.S. House District 1 Representative in Tuesday night's Primary Election.

According to the Smith County government website, Moran, a graduate of Whitehouse High School, continued his education at the U.S. Military Academy and Texas Tech University, where he received a bachelor’s degree in Russian (1997), an MBA (1998), and his law degree (2002).
Moran has volunteered with a number of nonprofit organizations including the Discovery Science Place, Whitehouse ISD Education Foundation, Cancer Foundation for Life, Smith County Bar Association, and Boy Scouts of America Troop 370 (Green Acres). He previously served on the Tyler City Council from 2005-2009, representing District 5.
