Who & Where
The 92nd District includes the suburban Fort Worth towns of Hurst, Euless, and Bedford. These towns are commonly nicknamed as HEB since they encompass a shared school district and many common retail centers.

Jonathan Stickland
Rep. Stickland was recruited to run by Julie McCarty, president of the board of the NE Tarrant Tea Party. McCarty is quoted as saying that she was impressed with how Stickland confronted Congressman Michael Burgess at a town hall meeting on the subject of Burgess' 2011 vote to raise the federal debt limit.

District Outlook
The 2011-era version of the 92nd shares many of the same geographic and political characteristics as the 2001-era district. The previous representative, Todd Smith, had begun his legislative career with a reputation as being more moderate, often voting with Charlie Geren on education votes opposed by then-Speaker Craddick. That streak of occasional independence was enough for Smith to earn primary opposition in 2010 (which Smith won with 59%) and worked against him in his 2012 primary campaign for a State Senate seat in District 9.

With the ascension of Rep. Stickland against establishment-backed opposition, it would appear that the extreme right wing of the Republican Party in Northeast Tarrant County has succeeded in winning the 92nd district (among others).
