Rep. Pete Olson of Texas said Thursday that he will not run for reelection in 2020. The announcement comes one day after a similar one by fellow GOP Rep. Paul Mitchell of Michigan.
Texas's 22nd district is largely suburban, and encompasses much of the southern portion of the Houston metropolitan area. After Olson narrowly won reelection in 2018, this was already expected to be a competitive district in 2020. The absence of an incumbent will make it more so. Sabato's Crystal Ball has changed its rating from 'Leans Republican' to 'Toss-up'.
