When it comes to the financial arms race for House District 113, there really is no competition. 33-year old Republican nominee Jonathan Boos significantly outpaces Democrat nominee Rhetta Bowers (pictured left), no matter how you slice the data. Still, Dr. Mark Jones of Rice University, who has analyzed all Texas House districts according to voters’ partisanship, affinity for Trump, and ideology, scores HD 113 as one of the most likely to flip from red to blue.

Currently, State Senator Konni Burton (R-Colleyville), a longtime conservative activist, small business owner, and adoptive mom of two, represents the district. She wrestled the seat away from Democrats in 2014 when her predecessor, Wendy Davis, left the seat for her failed gubernatorial campaign against Greg Abbott.
The 2018 race was Round Two of a Keffer-backed successor vs. Lang. Jim Largent, superintendent of Granbury ISD, was openly supported by Keffer and many of Texas’ more liberal Republican advocacy groups. Largent, Keffer, and these outside groups were ultimately unsuccessful as Lang easily won reelection.
