Current Term 2013 - 2015 View All


Marchant was born February 23, 1951 in Bonham, Texas. Prior to being elected to the U.S. House, Marchant was a real estate developer and owned a homebuilding company. Marchant served a councilman on the Carrollton, Texas City Council from 1980-1984, was mayor of Carrollton from 1984-1986 and was a member of the Texas House from 1987-2004.

Texas' 24th Congressional District was created as a result of redistricting. Marchant had planned to run for Congress in 2002 in a bid to represent suburban Dallas, but fellow Republican Pete Sessions, an incumbent, chose to run there instead. But in 2004, Marchant, in his position on the Texas House's Redistricting Committee, was ideally positioned to oversee the drawing of a new seat that helped tilt the odds in his favor. The 24th District, as re-drawn, is centered in Carrollton, where Marchant has held local office for a quarter-century. Read More...
