  • 2010
    Age 62
    Sibley carried the backing in the 2010 election of former U.S. President George W. Bush, who had earlier befriended Birdwell, a burn victim of the terrorist attack on The Pentagon on September 11, 2001.
    More Details Hide Details Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas, is located within the senatorial district. Birdwell, who carried the support of the Tea Party movement, was unopposed for the seat in the November 2, 2010, general election. Sibley was born to J. Dale Sibley and the former Marilyn McAdams (1921–2006), a native of Walker County who was an author of eight books and a historian at Houston Baptist University in Houston. The couple later returned and retired to Huntsville, the county seat of Walker County. David Sibley is the oldest of their three sons; his brothers, both dentists, are Dr. Stuart Dale Sibley and Dr. Mark McAdams Sibley.
    In the March 2, 2010 Republican primary, Averitt won renomination to the Senate despite his announced intention to withdraw from the contest after the deadline had passed.
    More Details Hide Details Birdwell won the special election in June and ran unopposed in November. Birdwell won a lawsuit challenging his residency and the Democrat opponent withdrew from the contest.
    A Dallas blogger described Sibley's 2010 special election defeat as "unthinkable.
    More Details Hide Details He was one of the most talented, smart, and respected legislators.
  • 2009
    Age 61
    The younger Sibley first said that he would support Republican Speaker Tom Craddick of Midland in the 2009 race for presiding officer but later declared his opposition to Craddick's after Craddick directed large sums of money to the incumbent. Anderson was a staunch Craddick ally. Craddick was replaced by Joe Straus of San Antonio though Craddick remains the senior member of the state House, with service dating to 1969.

    Age 52
    As a senator, Sibley chaired the Business and Commerce Committee for four sessions. He carried bills to deregulate the telephone and electric industries. Late in 2000, he lost the Senate vote for lieutenant governor by a single ballot, 16-15.
    More Details Hide Details The vacancy was created when Rick Perry resigned to become governor upon the election of George W. Bush as president. Instead the position went to another Republican, Bill Ratliff of Mt. Pleasant in East Texas, who finished the remaining two years but did not seek a full term in 2002. Another Republican, Senator J. E. "Buster" Brown of Lake Jackson, had also sought the position before the final vote. Sibley, Ratliff and Teel Bivins of Amarillo had formed something of a Texas senate triumvirate, known as the College of Cardinals, during the 1990s to make the institution function smoothly.
  • FORTIES
  • 1991
    Age 43
    Sibley was initially elected to the state Senate in a special election in 1991 from District 9, when incumbent Chet Edwards was elected to the United States House of Representatives, where he served in a Waco-based district.

    More Details Hide Details On June 22, 2010, Sibley unsuccessfully sought to return to the state Senate in District 22, but he lost a special election runoff to fellow Republican Brian Birdwell of Granbury in Hood County. The seat became vacant when Republican Kip Averitt, a former aide to Sibley, resigned because of health issues. Sibley's opponents disclosed in 2010 that as a lobbyist he had contributed to two liberal Democratic lawmakers, State Senator Leticia Van de Putte of San Antonio and State Representative Jim Dunnam of Waco. Dunnam in the spring of 2003 led Democratic lawmakers on a sojourn to Ardmore, Oklahoma, in an ultimately failed bid to deny a legislative quorum as the lawmakers redistricted the thirty-two seats that Texas has in the United States House of Representatives. Otherwise, it was noted that 97 percent of Sibley's contributions had gone to his fellow Republicans.
  • 1984
    Age 36

State Representative Byron Cook of Corsicana, the seat of Navarro County located within Senate District 22, endorsed Sibley's unsuccessful effort to return to the Senate in 2010. Cook described Sibley as having been "a workhorse" who spearheaded many of Governor Bush's "conservative reforms including tax cuts, economic development initiatives, tougher criminal penalties, and patient rights insurance reform."
