US House: Primaries to Watch
||Open after redistricting, this is one of the few competitive general election districts in the state. 2020 nominee Monica De La Cruz won the GOP primary outright. There was a much more closely-contested primary for the Democrats. Ruben Ramirez (28% of the vote) and Michelle Vallejo (20%) advanced.
||In a rematch from 2020, Rep. Henry Cuellar narrowly led his more progressive challenger, Jessica Cisneros by 49% to 47%. The runoff has drawn additional attention with the release of the Supreme Court's draft opinion on Roe vs. Wade. Cuellar is the only House Democrat that opposes abortion.
||Whether the Democratic nominee is Cuellar or Cisneros, they are expected to face a competitive general election. The Republican runoff is between Cassy Garcia, a former staffer for Ted Cruz and Sandra Whitten, who lost to Cuellar as the GOP nominee in 2020. On March 1, Garcia had 24% of the vote, Whitten was at 18%.
||Incumbent Eddie Bernice Johnson is retiring from this safely Democratic district. She endorsed State Rep. Jasmine Crockett, who fell just short of a majority with 48%. Jane Hamilton advanced with 17%.
