RATINGS CHANGE: TX-07 moves toward GOP
Bob Salera | February 6, 2020

In the latest nail in the coffin of the DCCC’s case that Texas is a purple state, Sabato’s Crystal Ball has moved TX-07 toward Republicans.

Contrary to Democrats’ contention that Texas’ suburbs are blue, Crystal Ball writes, “That said, it’s also not totally guaranteed that Trump will again lose this district, which backed Clinton by about 1.5 points. There is always the possibility that the eventual Democratic nominee will not be as good a fit for Democratic-trending suburban areas as Hillary Clinton proved to be.”

Keep that in mind as Bernie Sanders sweeps the early states.
