After just a few months on the job, Dallas Co. Republican Chair Mark Montgomery resigned, citing “recent changes in my personal life that will inhibit my ability” to serve as chair. Hours later, Rep. Jason Villalba (R-Dallas) tweeted a swipe at Sen. Don Huffines (R-Dallas):
@DonHuffines is singularly the worst senator #SD16 has ever experienced. And now he is trying to dismantle the Party to install his brother.

Huffines was a significant contributor to Villalba’s primary opponent and paid for several mail pieces attacking Villalba.
We retweeted Villalba’s tweet with the addition of, “File under 2018 races to watch #txlege”. Villalba liked and retweeted that tweet.
So, file it under races to watch in 2018.
