I’m sure he’s a great guy, but TX-26 is a lock for the GOP.
However, it’s worth commenting on this very odd statement:
Certainly [TX-26] feels like a gerrymandered district from a partisan standpoint.
Hm. Well, TX-26 is reasonably geometric and centered on a major population center (Denton) which is pretty much what a NON-gerrymandered district is supposed to look like:
So, if any district is “gerrymandered” there, it would be TX-12, which district with that little peninsula extending into it, not TX-26. TX would have to prove that that was done for reasons other than diluting minority voting representation.
And it’s not easy to find minorities in those northside suburbs of DFW. Both districts that border TX-26 to the south are also represented by Republican reps in districts that are court-drawn.
