Mistermix mentioned a big retirement in Texas, Will Hurd from TX-23. Let’s raise some money for the eventual Democratic nominee.
Texas is one of the most interesting states in the country politically right now, because of two political trends. One is moving more slowly than many thought it would — that’s the change in voting patterns as Latinos become a larger portion of the state’s population. The other is moving much more quickly — and that’s the movement of the suburbs, especially suburban women, away from the Republican party. I love this tweet from Dave Weigel
If the parties realize suburban voters are more gettable than working class whites, I'm excited for the new campaign rhetoric.
