In the Fort Worth Independent School District, conservatives are backing Josh Yoder, Valeria Nevarez and Pat Carlson, who are challenging C.J.

Evans, Quinton “Q” Phillips and Tobi Jackson. Also running against Evans is Kevin Lynch, who is backed by former Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price and not running explicitly on social issues.

Phillips also faces a third challenger, Mar’tayshia James, who is not running on a conservative platform. Evans, it should be noted, is arguably the school board’s most conservative member.
