The high stakes battle for the Texas House

Texas Democrats’ only hope of having some direct or indirect impact on the 2021 redistricting process is to take control of the Texas House. By the same token, if the Texas GOP can retain its House majority, it will be able to draw tailor-made legislative districts that will increase its prospects of retaining control of the Texas Senate and House during the next decade as well as increase the odds of the GOP retaking control of the U.S. House during the next decade.
