Texas House District 108, which includes a portion of Dallas, Highland Park, and University Park, is one of the most competitive races in Texas this year. Republican State Rep. Morgan Meyer is seeking a fourth term in office and has been challenged to a rematch by his 2018 rival, Democrat Joanna Cattanach. Meyer held onto the seat in 2018 after a recount by only 220 votes. This razor-thin 0.56 percent margin of victory makes this race a top target of Democrats seeking to flip the Texas House to blue this November.

There’s a lot of talk about Texas’ Big Three — Governor Greg Abbott, Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, and new Speaker of the House Dennis Bonnen. Considered the three most powerful politicians in Austin, and all conservative Republicans, they made headlines when they declared in January that they would be working as a team to reform property taxes and the school finance system.
Spanning seven counties in Central Texas, the HD 13 seat was occupied by State Representative Leighton Schubert who shocked politicos when he announced — just a few weeks before the filing deadline — that not only was he declining to seek re-election, but he also intended to resign his position before the current term was over. Schubert cited the need to focus on his family.
