“It is time for me to focus on my family, new callings in life and allow someone else the opportunity to have the honor to represent our community in the Texas Legislature,” Bohac said in a statement. “I look forward to supporting the best brave public servant from HD138 that emerges to serve our community.”

Lang announced he would run for Hood Co. Commissioner P3, an open seat being vacated by Comm. Bruce White (R).

Bohac’s seat is a battlefield district in 2020, while Lang’s is safely Republican. Bohac defeated Democrat Adam Milasincic by 47 votes in 2018, by far the narrowest margin of Bohac’s career. Bohac had previously received at least 58% of the vote, and won by at least 19 percentage points, in every general election contest for the district.
