Democrats hoping to turn Texas blue see a tempting — if formidable — target in freshman Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R).
Crenshaw’s seat is one of several in Texas Democrats are contesting this cycle, and the party is bullish that the 2nd District — and the state at large — are in play. But while several other Democratic House contenders are either competing for open seats or in districts with lesser-known incumbents, the party could face headwinds trying to unseat a rising GOP star in Crenshaw, who has been cast as a future Republican thought leader.
The article goes on to state the following:
Democrats have thrown their support behind Sima Ladjevardian, a prominent Houston attorney and health care activist who fled Iran as a child, survived cancer and advised former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s 2018 Senate campaign, setting her up to run as a candidate with a compelling life story who reflects the growing diversity of the Houston area and Texas at large.
The report notes that the 2nd District “has a high number of college graduates, it includes parts of a major city — Houston — and the surrounding suburbs and about 44 percent of adults there are either Black or Hispanic, two demographics that lean Democratic.”

This is a huge win for democracy. 🇺🇸 https://t.co/jkXIQQ2PzB

Crenshaw spoke out last week, calling out FBI Director Chris Wray when he simply called antifa an “ideology.”
Today, not one Democrat could condemn Antifa by name. Many questioned the existence of Antifa. I asked the FBI Director why he describes Antifa as an “ideology” more than a “group.” Spoiler alert: I disagree with him. pic.twitter.com/LXSL2h0Usd
