Possible candidates

Chris lists
state Sen. Kyle Janek
Sugar Land Mayor David Wallace
Tom Campbell

Random names that might think about it:
state Rep. Charlie Howard
newly elected state Sen. Glenn Hegar?
Ben Streusand
Eric Thode
state Rep. Larry Taylor from Friendswood?
Fort Bend Commissioner Andy Meyers
Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson?
Fort Bend County Judge Bob Hebert

Chronicle additions:
Harris County Judge Bob Eckels
state Rep. Robert Talton
Houston City Councilwoman Shelley Sekula-Gibbs (apparently lives in Clear Lake?)
former Judge John Devine

Maybe we'll get more surprises too...?

I could see Eckels possibly pulling it off, but he's not really known as being from that part of Houston.

Remember, the person does not need to live in the district.

UPDATE: Tom Campbell and David Wallace both say that they will be running in the special election.

UPDATE2: Greg suggests Jerry Patterson. Interesting. Patterson strikes me as wanting to stay Land Commissioner, but who knows. He does have ties to the area of the district.
