Republicans will likely try to expand their current 23R-13D edge to a 26R-13D edge

Texas is set to gain three seats, and Republicans will likely try to expand their current 23R-13D edge to a 26R-13D edge - all while adding at least one new Hispanic majority seat and a new Dem seat in Austin. Here's how...

I would go from Joaquin Castro's (20) district to Chip Roy's (21) in Brown....ugh....

Castro himself would also end up residing in CD 21. Joaquin was also my state rep and lives about 5 miles from me (Requirement for state rep, but not congress.) I wonder if he will run for CD 20 again? Would he run for CD 21? Would have a chance of winning? Would Castro move into CD 20 so that he can run? His brother lives in CD 20...Maybe Joaquin can run for CD 21 and Julian can run for CD 20..

Currently, I don't even live close to CD 21. I was in CD 23 (in green) for almost 20 years. But the boundary was the next precinct over...not this crazy makeover. Then, I got put in Joaquin's district. I'm sure having Joaquin in the Texas House during redistricting helped carve the district, so that Joaquin could run in CD 20 and reside there.

I have never lived in CD 21....ugh. They've moved over about 15 miles...ugh
