Overview

Who & Where

Lon Burnam

District Outlook
After a narrow primary win in 2012 over Carlos Vasquez, Representative Burnam once more faces a challenge from the Hispanic community in Ramon Romero. As presently drawn, the district contains a CVAP- and SSRV-majority Hispanic population. While Burnam is an experienced and aggressive campaigner, there is no reason to think that he will have an easy primary contest for as long as he represents the district.

For Romero's part, he has served on the Fort Worth Zoning Commission and Plan Commission, and also narrowly lost a 2012 runoff contest for Forth Worth City Council District 8 to Kelly Gray
