Every Republican who opposed school choice in the Texas House now finds themselves facing a challenger in the upcoming Republican primary.
Despite being a priority of the Republican Party of Texas and Gov. Greg Abbott, last month 21 Republicans joined Democrats in voting to remove a school choice program from a school spending proposal.
Now each of those 21 members are either leaving the legislature or facing intraparty opposition.
|Marc LaHood, Michael Champion
|Janis Holt, Stephen Missick
|Helen Kerwin, Lyndon Laird
|Bonnie Walters, Joe McDaniel
|Dennis London, Katrina Pierson
|Greg Switzer, David Freimarck, Alan Schoolcraft
|Charles Byrn, Liz Case
|Hillary Hickland, David Ford
|Dale Huls, Chris Spencer
Abbott, meanwhile, has begun to endorse challengers to these incumbents, with U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz saying he will also be working to unseat those Republican members.
The Republican primary election will take place on March 5, 2024.
