DCCC Opens Texas Office to Target GOP Seats

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is opening an office in Austin, Texas as it looks to boost it efforts in state, The Texas Tribune is reporting.

“When it comes to places where House Democrats can go on offense, it doesn’t get any bigger than Texas,” said U.S. Rep. Cheri Bustos, D-Ill., chairwoman of the DCCC. “In 2018, Texas Democrats proved that they can win in competitive districts. That’s why we are continuing our investments in the Lone Star State by opening a new DCCC Texas headquarters."

The new office will be staffed by 8 people.

The newspaper noted that last year, Democrats flipped two House seats in Texas and are targeting six Republican incumbents in 2020: Reps. John Carter, Kenny Marchant, Will Hurd, Michael McCaul, Pete Olson and Chip Roy.

The Hill reported the office will also look to safeguard Democratic Reps. Colin Allred and Lizzie Pannill Fletcher, who gained House seats in the 2018 midterms.

"If the socialist Democrats were serious about competing in Texas they wouldn’t have spent the past three months pushing far-left policies like the oil-and-gas-killing Green New Deal and banning private health insurance,” said Bob Salera, spokesman for the U.S. House Republican campaign arm. “Texans will reject the socialist Democrats and their zany ideas in 2020.”
