FORT WORTH — Grassroots political activist David Lowe has announced his campaign challenging incumbent State Rep. Stephanie Klick for a seat in House District 91.

Lowe’s campaign announcement marks his second challenge to Klick; he lost in a close runoff election by 786 votes in 2022.

“Since the run-off, I have made it my personal mission to stay involved, taking on politicians who refuse to do right by citizens at every level including city, county, and state,” Lowe said in his announcement.  “The need for a bulldog in the legislature, who is willing to take on some of the most powerful politicians has never been greater.”

HD 91 is currently represented by Klick, whom Lowe says voted to kill numerous pieces of conservative legislation.

In the 87th Legislative Session, Klick prevented legislation that would protect children from child gender mutilation from passing through the Public Health Committee, which she chaired. Klick also repeatedly killed the effort to pass legislation to ban insurance coverage for child gender mutilation procedures.

This legislative session, Klick earned a 49 rating on the Fiscal Responsibility Index.

“I cannot sit on the sidelines and continue to watch Stephanie Klick continue to kill Republican Party-supported legislation and lie to her constituents about both her successes and failures,” Lowe said. “She needs to be fired and retired.”

Election integrity, eliminating property taxes, stopping corporate welfare, securing the border, and stopping the sexualization of children are all priority items for Lowe.

“If we want change, then we must vote for it,”  Lowe said.
