Will GOP hold the Texas Legislature in 2020?

Special broadcast today focused upon 2020 elections.

Pratt on Texas“Democrats could gain control of the Texas House for the first time since 2001,” was the headline of a story at the Texas Tribune on Friday the 13th of December. If Democrats did take the House it would be as unlucky as any bad happening for which people blame a Friday the 13th.

There are a dozen Texas House seats Dems flipped their way in the last cycle, and with this being the end of a decade-long redistricting map and the changes in urban-region population demographics, some say as many as thirty seats are “competitive” in the 2020 cycle.

I don’t for a moment think thirty seats are competitive but there are enough seats in play that Democrats could, if everything goes their way, win the nine that it would take to have a House majority.

I’m not a Pollyanna on the issue but unless a magnetic figure emerges for the Dems in the presidential or U.S. Senate race in Texas, I doubt they’ll enjoy as many upset wins as the press is currently, and will be all next year, rooting for. The in-the-trenches voter excitement for Trump is much stronger in Texas than any counter force from the Leftist Dems.
