We recommend Duncan Klussmann in the Democratic runoff for the 38th congressional district
Last fall, Texas Republicans drew a new congressional district in western Harris County. This red-red-red seat was designed to specifically benefit Wesley Hunt, an Iraq War veteran who came within four points of beating U.S. Rep. Lizzie Fletcher in another district in 2020.
The new district – the 38th – encompasses affluent Houston neighborhoods such as River Oaks and expands into conservative neighborhoods such as Tomball and Cypress. Hunt, who won the Republican primary, will be tough to beat. He has been endorsed by both Sen. Ted Cruz and U.S. Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and has a formidable campaign war chest, with $1.8 million available as of March 31.
