HOUSTON – State Representative Dwayne Bohac (R-District 138) was reelected to a second term in the Texas House of Representatives today with an overwhelming 64% of the vote as the polls closed this evening.
With 100% of the precincts reporting, Dwayne Bohac received 23,217 votes to his opponent’s 13,201. Due to high voter turnout and broad support from Republicans and Democrats alike, Bohac received 58% more votes than when he was first elected to the Texas House in 2002.
“I am proud to have the privilege to represent the 138th District in the Texas House of Representatives for a second term,” said Bohac. “I am excited to have the opportunity to continue my pro-family, pro-education, and pro-taxpayer agenda when we return to Austin this January.”
During his first term, Representative Bohac had an aggressive legislative agenda and was the only freshman legislator to have authored a bill placed on the Major State Calendar of the Texas House of Representatives. His achievements included the restoration of the Pledge of Allegiance to the public school classroom, strengthening common nuisance laws to crack down on illegal activities such as gambling, prostitution, illegal drug use and gang activity, and setting up a program to reimburse hardworking teachers who spend their own money to provide for our children in the classroom.
“I want to thank the voters for their support and their ongoing trust,” concluded Bohac. “I look forward to working together with all of my constituents to make our district a better place to live, work and raise a family.”
