"We made great progress in the state of Texas. And Nationally, with control of the House, we have hope. -- Monica Alcantara, Chair, Bexar County Democratic Party
Message from the Chair of the Texas Democratic Party
While we came up short in a few areas, Texas Democrats just delivered the best statewide margin in a generation. I still can't believe how close last night was. We shattered all expectations and showed Texas is in play in 2020. So many Texas Democrats like you donated your time and chipped in the resources to help Democrats win down the ballot. And those efforts paid off. Because of you. Together, we have accomplished:
Texas Democrats flipped 2 U.S. House Districts with the election of Lizzie Fletcher and Colin Allred -- with 1 race too close to call.
Texas Democrats made history by sending the first two Latinas to Congress with the election of Sylvia Garcia and Veronica Escobar.
Texas Democrats flipped 2 seats in the Texas Senate.
Texas Democrats picked up 12 seats in the Texas House -- with 3 races that are too close to call.
Texas Democrats swept Bexar, Fort Bend, and Harris, while holding Democratic strongholds along the Rio Grande Valley, and in El Paso, Dallas, and Travis counties.
Texas Democrats made huge gains in suburban Tarrant, Hays and Williamson Counties.
Texas Democrats flipped the DA races in Fort Bend, Bexar, and Dallas Counties.
Texas Democrats swept the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 13th, and 14th Court of Appeals. We flipped the 3rd and 14th Courts. Ushering a new era of fairness and justice in Texas.
Let's continue to show the nation that Texas Democrats are here, we are only growing stronger, and will never stop fighting for a fair shot for all. Adelante, Gilberto Hinojosa Chair, Texas Democratic Party
