One in a series about elections for the Texas House of Representatives.
State Rep. Morgan Meyer says the district he represents is centrist.
Because of that, the Republican lawmaker said he’s focused his five years in Austin on middle-of-the-road issues where he can work across the aisle with Democrats.
“We are not far to the left, we are not far to the right,” he said. “We are right in the middle.”
But his Democratic opponent Joanna Cattanach says that old line won’t work. House District 108 — which spans the Park Cities, Uptown, parts of downtown and Old East Dallas — has moved politically to the left and Meyer is “out of touch” with its needs on issues like access to abortion and preventing gun violence.
After coming within 220 votes of ousting Meyer two years ago, Cattanach said she’s back to finish the job in November.
