Incumbent State Representative District 2 Dan Flynn edged out Bryan Slaton in a highly contested race for the Republican nomination and by default of no Democrat opposition, re-election to the Representative seat. Slaton, who carried Hopkins County by only 13 votes, out polled Flynn in early voting across the district but it was Slaton’s home county that sidelined his effort.

Hunt County voters cast 6,476 votes for Flynn and only 5,988 for Slaton. Those 488 votes set aside the Hopkins and Van Zandt slim margin for Slaton. Hopkins County voters gave Flynn 2,958 votes while casting 2,971 for Slaton. Van Zandt County cast 5,377 votes for incumbent Flynn and 5,483 for Slaton.

During the campaign, Slaton tried to show himself as more conservative than Flynn, a task some would call impossible. Flynn on the other hand received endorsement from almost every Republican elected representative, the NRA, and right to life advocates. Flynn stated that Slaton was being financed by a West Texas millionaire.

Slaton was also very quiet about his past. A past that was shadowed by changing jobs often, working in a church that was slow in uncovering sexual misconduct by youth staff members, and accusations of harassment by Hunt County and Royce City officials.
