The Texas House Democratic Campaign Committee is building the strongest effort ever to flip the Texas House because so much is at stake in 2020. Next session, the Texas House will draw new legislative maps for the next decade — maps that will have major implication on public policy from climate change to health care. Redistricting makes this a very important year.
“I fully expect at least three out of the five Tarrant seats will absolutely flip,” said Jana Sanchez, a former congressional candidate and finance chair of Tarrant Together.
We only need to win 9 Texas races to flip the Texas House. If Democrats are able to flip nine House seats throughout the state — and hold on to the House seats Democrats hold — our party will take control of the lower chamber. If that happens in 2020, the political shift comes in time for Democrats to have a significant voice in the 2021 redistricting process.
“Everything is focused on redistricting,” state Sen. Kelly Hancock, R-North Richland Hills, said at a recent Tea Party meeting as he fielded questions about the demise of some controversial legislation last session. “There is nothing more important — not only to Texas, but literally the nation — than to make sure that we [Republicans] maintain the Texas House … going into redistricting because if you look at the nation — we lose Texas, we lose the nation. And there’s no other place to go.” https://www.texastribune.org/2019/06/13/texas-house-majority-2020-democrats-only-need-nine-seats/
The winners will be determined by who turns out to vote. It’s critical that we get out the vote for Democrats. You can donate here: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/txhdcc
