Early voting begins on Monday in the November 8 election. The races for governor and Texas attorney general rightly get a lot of the attention, but there are local races that will have a significant impact on Dallas. One of those is for district attorney, where incumbent John Creuzot, a Democrat, is facing Republican challenger Faith Johnson. She last occupied the seat in 2018, after Gov. Greg Abbott appointed her to serve following Susan Hawk’s resignation. Johnson’s camp did not respond to multiple requests to join us on EarBurner, so it looks like the podcast will bring you only Creuzot in this contest.

Tim Rogers and Zac Crain sat down with the district attorney to talk about his platform but also about his time working for legendary DA Henry Wade, his ties to the Frenchy’s Chicken chain in Houston, his divert court, Rick Perry, and plenty more.
