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.
