Guillen hasn’t made many waves in Austin during his tenure as a state representative, a fact which contributed to Garza’s challenge. Her critiques of Guillen centered on what she deemed a lack of rocking the boat, and an insistence on going along with the crowd. Despite her strong performance, voters ultimately decided they preferred Guillen’s approach, and he won reelection.

Texas Right to Life (TRTL) is the largest, and oldest pro-life advocacy group in the state of Texas. Their political arm lobbies legislators during the legislative session to enact conservative reforms on life issues, while their PAC works during campaign season to elect conservatives and defeat Republicans they deem unwilling to stand for life.
During the previous two legislative sessions, Tesla’s lobbying efforts failed. First, Tesla’s adversaries in the established auto-dealer industry were well-funded and well-organized. Second, lawmakers didn’t like the fact that Tesla’s proposed bill essentially created a “carve-out” for them, but no one else.
