Bowers, Douglas disagree over education, jobs, health care in eastern Dallas County Texas House race

One in a series about elections for the Texas House of Representatives.

State Rep. Rhetta Bowers’ record during her first term in office is a point of fundamental disagreement between her and Republican challenger, Will Douglas.

Bowers, a Democrat who flipped House District 113 in 2018, says she worked across the aisle to pass significant legislation, like a major funding bill for public schools and laws that increased mental health precautions to prevent school shootings.

Douglas, an entrepreneur who owns several small pharmacies, says Bowers is one of the most “progressive” members in the Legislature whose ideas will shutter small businesses, stymie innovation and derail the Texas economy.

The two are in a heated battle to represent the traditionally Republican district which covers parts of Garland, Mesquite and Rowlett. The race’s outcome could have a larger effect in determining which party holds control in the Texas House next January.
