Democrats are targeting Texas in the 2020 election as a "Texodus" of Republican members of Congress deciding not to stand again is already underway.

It has long been anticipated that the changing demographics of Texas, a Republican bastion with a quickly rising Hispanic population, could turn the state "blue".

[snip]

In the last two weeks four Republican members of Congress announced they will not seek re-election in 2020, when congressional elections happen on the same day as the presidential vote.

That brought the total stepping down to 11, a third of the entire Texas congressional delegation. Further announcements are expected.

I disagree.  Circle gets the square.

I find it a little hard to believe the state is up for grabs, next year, but what do you TX natives have to say?

If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.

@edpc

The Texas Republicans in the US House do not want to serve in a Trump administration anymore, so they retired.

Yes, I have explained in several threads over the months since the 2018 election, Texas stands to lose seats in the Texas Legislature and the US House.  Due to this, Senator Cornyn, who is up for reelection, may lose his seat to a Democrat if one runs against him.

Dare I say "Texafornia?"

A few years ago I noted that 4 of the 6 southern most California counties were Republican majority.

San Diego, Orange, Ventura and San Luis Obispo. Theturned, voted for Obama BEFORE Trump.

It is a national trend; some of the GOP stuff don't sell any longer.
