Will Hurd (R-TX-23) is retiring to “solve problems at the nexus between technology and national security”, which I guess is wonkspeak for “avoid getting whupped”, since he won his last race by less than 1,000 votes. We’ll probably flip that 71% Latino district.
Looking at the Cook roundup of House ratings, I’m feeling pretty good about holding the House. I see a lot of big name Republicans in tough fights – these guys will spend millions to keep their seats. I also see more open/vacant seats on the Republican side (6) than on the Democratic (1).
I’m taking nothing for granted, but so far so good on the House.
