TEXAS’S 7TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

November 3, 2018 by TWN Staff

Incumbent: John Culberson (R)

Challenger: Lizzie Fletcher (D)

Current Polling: John Culberson (R) 46, Lizzie Fletcher 45 (NY Times/Siena, 10/25)

Why this race matters: First elected in this deep red Texas district in 2000, John Culberson has been a solid Republican throughout his tenure in the House. A wealthy and educated district that voted for Clinton by just 1 point, this is the kind of district Democrats want to flip as a reflection on Trump. Lizzie Fletcher, a political newcomer with the fundraising advantage, is a corporate attorney trying to win over anti-Trump Republicans with a focus on healthcare and the response to Hurricane Harvey.
