I do believe, if not mistaken, there was redistricting going on in Galveston, which is usually what the Republicans and Democrats do when they want someone else in. (They change the composition of the vote in each district in some kind of crazy power sharing agreement). It does happen and is quite the under-reported scandal. Whether or not it has anything to do with Paul running again, who knows. He could probably run for House again anywhere and win re-election due to his national notoriety.
