Three GOP candidates line up in open race to succeed House Insurance Chairman Phillips

Phillips supports former Grayson County Republican Chairman Reggie Smith; two hot Senate races overlaying the district will complicate the politics

SHERMAN – For the first time in more than a decade the voters of House District 62 in north Texas will elect a new state representative. Texas House Insurance Committee Chairman Larry Phillips, R-Sherman, has represented the district northeast of Dallas-Fort Worth comprising Delta, Fannin and Grayson counties since 2003. He announced his retirement last month.

Even before Phillips confirmed his rumored retirement, two candidates had announced their bids.
