Rep. Villalba, Ryan face off in Dallas debate
Villalba pushes back against opposition to red meat issues, emphasizes bipartisanship and policy
DALLAS –– An early morning debate hosted by the North Dallas Chamber of Commerce and League of Women Voters of Dallas today highlighted
the Republican primary race pitting Rep. Jason
Villalba, R-Dallas against businesswoman Lisa Luby Ryan.
The two agree on many issues.
But the two are decidedly different when it comes to nuts
and bolts and Ryan, who is not related to Dallas executive and major Republican
donor Brint Ryan, differ on issues
when it comes to the red meat. Ryan nailed Villalba repeatedly on hot button
issues like guns (she opposes gun restrictions), “sanctuary cities” (she
opposes them) and the so-called bathroom bill (she loves it).
