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.
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.
