We continue our exploration of straight-ticket voting trends in competitive or potentially competitive districts by looking at the precincts currently comprising HD92 in Northeast Tarrant County. The district includes all of Hurst, Euless and Bedford, which represent 88% of votes cast in the district. HD92 also includes a portion of northern Arlington, the Tarrant Co. portion of Grand Prairie and a finger of Fort Worth reaching toward the airport.
Rep. Jonathan Stickland (R-Bedford) is seeking a third term. He is opposed by Tarrant Co. Democratic Party activist and animal activist Kim Leach. A pair of minor party candidates, Libertarian Leah Sees and Green Travis Christal, are also on the ballot.
A recent memo from Leland Beatty optimistically projected that around 20 Republican-held seats could be “in play” in November. We are not advised as to whether HD92 is on that list, but, even if it were, we are certain it will not be “in play.”
Republicans have served this area in the House since 1985
