Texas has 36 congressional districts, trailing only California (53), for the most in the country. There are 25 Republicans and 11 Democrats in the delegation. Eight of the 36 (6 Republicans, 2 Democrats) are not seeking reelection. All are retiring, except Democrat Beto O'Rourke, who is challenging Ted Cruz in the 2018 U.S. Senate race. Only four of the 36 districts are seen as at least somewhat competitive, all are held by Republicans. Three of these four are among the 23 districts nationwide in 2016 that elected a Republican to the House while voting for Hillary Clinton for president.
