A small business owner and Air Force veteran, Matt Beebe twice before ran unsuccessfully against Speaker Straus; the 2018 primary was his third attempt at the HD 121 seat. Steve Allison, a 71-year old lawyer, received the backing of the liberal outgoing Speaker. The primary race in March saw six candidates vying for the seat, with Beebe finishing first at 29.56% and Allison close on his heels netting 26.34% of the first round of ballots. Ultimately, in the runoff, Allison was able to marshal enough resources and support from the district to overtake Beebe.
