About Senator DowlingEdit

Dowling disagreed with political lobbyist Donna Culver Krebbs on every issue, including tariffs on imported oil and U.S. intervention in Nicaragua (how topical, “Dallas”!), but that didn’t keep him from sweeping the very married, very pregnant Donna off her feet as they engaged in a torrid affair. Later, when the Justice Department was about to lay the smackdown on Ewing Oil over J.R.’s escapades in the Middle East, Dowling tipped off the family, which really should have been Dave Culver’s job, but whatever. When the feds discovered the J.R. tried to blow up the Middle East to boost domestic oil prices, the Justice Department shut down Ewing Oil and prohibited the family from using the company name again. Bobby went to work reclaiming the name as he was able to get help from Dowling's office, through U.S. Goverment agent Kay Lloyd.[1]

As for his relationship with Donna, she wound up divorcing Ray, gave birth to their daughter Margaret, married Dowling and moved to Washington – where she hopefully found the happy ending that eluded her in Dallas.
