Another Republican state representative is running for re-election to the Texas House in 2024.

Freshman State Rep. Mark Dorazio (R–San Antonio) announced today he is seeking re-election to Texas House District 122, which covers the northwest portion of the Alamo City.

“I have learned so much and am proud of the work that we have done on behalf of the folks across HD 122,” he said. “I am prepared to run the race again to ensure that we continue to build upon the successes we’ve had.”

Dorazio earned a rating of 77 on the Fiscal Responsibility Index for his votes on fiscal issues during the regular 88th Legislative Session.

He often aligned with Texas Freedom Caucus members.

For example, Dorazio supported calls for the state to investigate Dallas becoming an abortion sanctuary city and for local school districts to leave the Texas Association of School Boards, an anti-parent taxpayer-funded lobbying group.

He also voted against a measure to extend corporate welfare, as well as against the House resolution to impeach Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.

“I told voters exactly what I would do if they chose me to represent them in Austin, and in every instance, we stepped up to the challenge before us and boldly fulfilled those promises,” Dorazio said.

Dorazio is a small business owner and a former State Republican Executive Committee member.

He was first elected to the Legislature in 2022 after liberal Republican State Rep. Lyle Larson chose not to run for a seventh term.

Dorazio’s campaign raised $295,000 in the 2022 election cycle. Dorazio also loaned his campaign $550,000.

He is just beginning to fundraise for 2024 but has $106,000 cash on hand.

Other Texas lawmakers who have announced they are running for re-election in the 2024 GOP primary include freshman State Rep. Frederick Frazier (McKinney) and five-term State Rep. Gary VanDeaver (New Boston).

Primary Election Day is March 5, 2024.
