36 Congressional Districts: 25 Republicans | 11 Democrats
Seven of the state's 36 House members are not seeking re-election. Rep. Beto O'Rourke (TX-16) is the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate.
Highly Competitive: 7th, 32nd
Two highly-educated suburban districts near Houston and Dallas represent the best Democratic opportunities to cut into the large GOP advantage in the state's congressional delegation. Both these districts narrowly voted for Clinton over Trump in 2016.
This is the state's other GOP House - Clinton district. While the district is competitive, Rep. Will Hurd seems to be in a slightly better position than the incumbents in the above two districts. Hurd led by 15 points in a mid-October poll.
Others to Watch: 2nd, 6th, 21st, 22nd, 24th, 31st
None of these are expected to change parties. However, if there's an upset somewhere on Tuesday, it will probably come from one of these districts.
