District 83 officially contested as Democrat enters race

Posted: Updated:

Burrow's Democratic opponent is officially in the race.

Drew Landry, a South Plains College professor, has been on the campaign trail for House District 83 for some time now, advocating for more state spending in education.

He says students, parents, administrators, board members, and homeowners all have a candidate now.

"When the state funds education, the property taxes go down," he said. "That's just basic cause-and-effect. So, anyone who doesn't understand that is... really shouldn't be running for public office -- especially at the state level, that deals with public education."

The primaries are in March -- Super Tuesday.
