National Democrats went all in on Texas’ HD-28, an open seat located in the fastest growing sections of TX-22. And boy did they get embarrassed.
Despite campaign stops by Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and Mike Bloomberg, heavy involvement by Beto O’Rourke and lighting piles of cash on fire, the Democrat candidate lost HD-28 by 16 points. The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee even went so far as to call the race “a key bellwether for the 2020 elections in the newly-minted swing state.”
Next time the DCCC tries to sell you on their prospects in solidly Republican districts in the Lone Star State, remember the HD-28 debacle.
