Tinderholt represents Texas House District 94, which includes parts of Arlington, Fort Worth, Bedford and Euless.

“I made it back to the district from Austin just in time to file to be on the March Republican primary ballot, on the first day of filing. It’s been the honor of a lifetime to represent our wonderful district.
