State Rep. Lynn Stucky handily beat a challenge from the right to secure the Republican nomination for Texas House of Representatives District 64.
Pharmaceutical salesman and former U.S. Marine Mark Roy enjoyed the support of Empower Texans, a statewide conservative political action committee which contributed more than $27,000 to his campaign. But it was not enough to convince District 64 voters.
Stucky said he felt good that people understood his message.
"Denton County voters look at the big picture and understand how they are being represented," Stucky said.
District 64 is situated wholly in Denton County and encompasses Denton, Krum, Corinth, Hickory Creek, Lake Dallas and Shady Shores.
Stucky will face the Democratic nominee when that race is settled. Matt Farmer quit early in the primary race, but still garnered enough votes to force a runoff between Andrew Morris and Mat Pruneda on May 22.
