Slawson unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination for Erath County Judge in 2018, losing to Alfonso Campos in a runoff, 55%-45%.

HD100: Dallas attorney Lorraine Birabil established a campaign committee for either a primary challenge of Rep. Eric Johnson (D-Dallas) or a potential special election for Johnson’s seat if he wins the Dallas mayoral runoff on Saturday.
