If the first bill filed by Texas state Rep. Four Price for the 83rd Legislature is any indication, the Amarillo Republican is off to a good start.

Among the bevy of bills filed by lawmakers before the session kicks off Jan. 8 is House Bill 220, Price’s second attempt to strengthen justice in Texas.

AUSTIN — There was no drama for the Texas Panhandle or the South Plains in Tuesday’s Texas Legislature races, but an unusually high turnover, especially in the 150-member House of Representatives, should benefit West Texas in the long run.

That’s the assessment of some members of the region’s legislative delegation and of lawmakers from outside the area.

Four Price re-elected to House

AUSTIN — State Rep. Four Price earned another two-year term Tuesday night.

Price, R-Amarillo, easily defeated former Potter County Democratic Party Chairman Abel Bosquez in Texas House District 87.

With nearly half of all votes counted in the five-county district, Price was leading Bosquez, 80 percent to 20 percent. Bosquez also lost to Price two years ago when they were battling for an open seat.

Price said he was thrilled with his overwhelming victory, but now it’s time to focus on the upcoming legislative session that will begin Jan. 8.

Editor’s note: This is the first of the Amarillo Globe-News’ recommendations in races on the Nov. 6 general election ballot. Early voting began Monday.

Texas House District 87 had an unknown quantity in 2010 when Walter “Four” Price, an Amarillo lawyer, won election to the spot held for nearly two decades by David Swinford.

Two years later, and voters have a clear picture of what they have in Price — a proven conservative that reflects the political beliefs and values of the majority of voters in the district.

AUSTIN — Early voting for the Nov. 6 general election begins Monday, but there are no contested statehouse races for most Texas Panhandle voters — except in House District 87.

Amarillo’s Republican incumbent Four Price is facing former Potter County Democratic Party chairman Abel Bosquez, the same opponent he defeated two years ago when it was an open seat.

Although District 87 is one of the reddest in the state, Price said he is campaigning hard because he is not taking anything for granted.
