Today, the Texas Senate is expected to consider the committee substitute for #SB6, the proposed map for Texas' 38 congressional districts, and several floor amendments.

We'll be live-tweeting on this 🧵 once it begins. Follow along: tlcsenate.granicus.com/MediaPlayer.ph…

Here's what #SB6, the proposed Congressional map (PLANC2116), currently looks like as voted out by the Senate #Redistricting Committee.

A rundown of how much TX GOP's proposed map would shore up nine of their own incumbents who badly need it:

#TX02 Crenshaw: Trump +1 to Trump +23
#TX03 Taylor: Trump +1 to Trump +15
#TX06 Ellzey: Trump +3 to Trump +20
#TX10 McCaul: Trump +2 to Trump +20
Continued...

#TX21 Roy: Trump +3 to Trump +20
#TX22 Nehls: Trump +1 to Trump +15
#TX23 Gonzales: Trump +2 to Trump +7
#TX24 Van Duyne: Biden +5 to Trump +12
#TX31 Carter: Trump +3 to Trump +20
The reason I was mildly surprised: Republicans could have drawn #TX03, #TX22 & #TX24 to be even redder.

All three GOP seats moved 25+ pts left between 2012 and 2020, and as proposed they could easily be vulnerable again by the middle of the 2020s.

Texas Republicans' proposed congressional map is up and analyzed on the @FiveThirtyEight redistricting tracker: projects.fivethirtyeight.com/redistricting-…
@FiveThirtyEight The map shores up #TX07, #TX28, #TX32, and #TX34 for Dems and adds a new solid-blue #TX37 in Austin. In exchange, #TX02, #TX03, #TX06, #TX10, #TX21, #TX22, #TX23, #TX24, and #TX31 are made safer for their Republican incumbents.
Dem Rep. Vicente Gonzalez's #TX15 also becomes a bit redder, but still a tossup, under this map. I wonder if he moves over to the safe blue #TX34, whence Rep. Filemon Vela is retiring. projects.fivethirtyeight.com/redistricting-…

Wow. This isn't even as aggressive a map as I expected from Texas Rs. It could plausibly be 24R-14D, w/ the chance Rs add seats in the Rio Grande Valley & Dems gain in DFW burbs over the course of the 2020s.
A few early highlights/impressions:
- a new Dem #TX37 in Austin
- a new GOP #TX38 in Houston (for Wesley Hunt?)
- no new Hispanic majority seat (lawsuit?)
- #TX15 Gonzalez (D) made redder
- #TX03 Taylor (R) & #TX24 Van Duyne (R) not shored up quite as much as I'd have expected
Another surprise: this GOP proposal doesn't shore up #TX21 Rep. Chip Roy (R) by nearly as much as it could have. He's still got a chunk of Travis Co.

The much bigger winners: #TX02 Crenshaw, #TX10 McCaul, #TX22 Nehls, #TX25 Williams, #TX31 Carter.

hello! While we're waiting for more presidential results, I thought I'd give you an update on the House. @DecisionDeskHQ projects that Republicans have won back 5 seats on net so far. Rs flipped 7 seats and Dems won back 2 thanks to redistricting in NC businessinsider.com/2020-house-ele…
Seats projected to flip D to R, per @DecisionDeskHQ

#IA01 ( Finkenauer)
#FL26 (Mucarsel-Powell)
#FL27 (Shalala)
#MN07 (Peterson)
#NM02 (Torres Small)
#OK05 ( Horn)
#SC01 (Cunningham)

Others to keep an eye on as more votes are counted: #CA21, #CA39, #NY11, #NY22, #UT04
Democrats have also fallen short on many of their offensive targets to flip R-held seats: their most promising pickup opportunity is #GA07, where @DecisionDesk HQ has not projected a winner and we should (hopefully!) get more clarity today as more votes are counted/reported

THE LONE STAR STATE IS PRO-LIFE!! ✰

With our partners WSO PAC & Pro-Life America PAC we went all in, spending $5M to hold the #ProLife majority in the Texas State House and WIN in key battleground congressional districts

As Americans, we are bound together by an idea larger than political discourse. We are bound by a shared belief in the greatness of Texas and our nation, and the centrality of both freedom and the rule of law to our prosperity as a people. #TX21 #StandUpForAmerica
On #ElectionNight, Texans in the Hill Country demonstrated our collective resolve to preserve these important ideals for ourselves and our children and grandchildren, so that they may inherit a stronger, safer, and freer country. #TX21
I am honored to represent the great people, businesses, and communities of the 21st Congressional District in Texas - and I appreciate the faith those people have placed in me to continue to represent them. #TX21

Since #COVID19 began wreaking havoc on our state, my opponent @chiproytx has pushed dangerous and extreme views about the virus. He downplayed the crisis, pushed for reopening without safeguards and ignored the advice of health experts. I'm calling him out.
@chiproytx Congressman @chiproytx even voted against relief for Texans impacted by the virus. Don’t take my word for it — below are the worst examples of his dangerous and misleading views, straight from him.
@chiproytx .@chiproytx opposed @GovAbbott’s lockdown orders, suggesting people ignore those orders & calling for the state to reopen — long before public health experts said it was advisable. ImageImageImage

New at @CookPolitical: House rating changes in 20 districts, all towards Democrats. I can’t recall the last time we moved so many races at once, let alone in the same direction.
More @CookPolitical: for the first time this cycle, Democrats have at least as good a chance of picking up House seats as Republicans on a net basis. cookpolitical.com/analysis/house…

As promised, here’s a thread on #PipelineChip, aka @chiproytx aka @Repchiproy, the stinkeroo of a GOP Congressman currently soiling the carpets in #TX21 (and being vigorously challenged by @wendydavis). This will be long so, as Chip would say, saddle up!
NB: I’m not accusing Chip of anything illegal here. All kinds of corrupt behavior, on both sides of the border, are perfectly legal. Certainly Chip isn’t doing much that @sentedcruz isn’t also doing. Chip is just noisier.
Chip IS guilty of shameless hypocrisy, in his fetishization of cartel violence & his lip service to values like property rights. He has enabled cartels at the highest levels—& jeopardized the life, health and safety of many people —for his personal enrichment & political power.

I’m a South Austinite since 1985, been eating at @kerbeylanecafe since I got here, and I have NEVER seen them do something this short-sighted and thoughtless to their customers: Image
That’s Kerbey Lane’s CEO Mason Ayer, giving a warm and obsequious shout-out to Chip Roy, the GOP trainwreck of a Congressman who has united Austin's TX-21 residents in a two-year effort to remove him from office.
A quick refresher on Chip’s legislative record: he blocked federal disaster aid for the sake of a photo op, voted against the Violence Against Women Act, ranted that big pharma CEOs should “make a lot more money,” and spreads Russian disinformation. whoischiproy.com Image

A note about last night’s town hall in San Antonio. It was a great event, hosted by a great Pastor who opened up his church, filled with great Texans, but was briefly interrupted by a few loud voices who do not represent #Tx21 in the slightest. (1/x)
It was interrupted allegedly on the basis of my statement(s) on Israel. But that was just an excuse, because it was then continuously & purposefully interrupted on all topics raised… Border Security, Guns, and more. This is not new. And it is expected. (2/x)
For all who stayed the duration, we had a great talk about healthcare, guns, border security, spending, natl security, & myriad topics of interest to central Texans. There was agreement & disagreement, but minus the handful of antagonists, it was productive. (3/x)

Several minutes in, @chiproytx town hall in San Antonio erupts when he brings up Omar and Tlaib Israel trip controversy. “Two options: Be respectful or leave,” Roy tells those shouting out. “I’m not going to allow you to take over this event.” #TX21
Twenty minutes in, Roy still getting interruptions, and some audience members sparring with one another, despite two efforts by pastor (his church is venue) to calm everyone down.
Amid continued outbursts from some audience members, and more efforts to calm them, Roy wraps up. He was on stage for about 34 minutes.

Today, @HouseDemocrats introduced their border supplemental bill in response to the request from @realDonaldTrump & the pressure applied by the @freedomcaucus. We are still reviewing the text of the Senate & House versions. Initial observations: (1/x) #EndBorderCrisisNow
While we all desperately want $ for humanitarian relief, Senate GOP appears to be moving a supplemental that will very likely worsen the crisis, & the House Dems’ version is worse. Both will further incentivize traffickers, cartels, & perpetuate catch & release... (2/x)
The senate and house bills provide little to no funding for additional beds for adults or families. Beds are critical for proper screening, proper care, & proper enforcement to drive down the incentives for future flow. (3/x)

BREAKING: After flipping FORTY seats from red to blue in 2018, we've officially got our sights set on THIRTY-THREE more -- and we're ready to get to work!

Take a look at our first offensive battlefield of the 2020 cycle:
Our Chair @CheriBustos is keeping her promises and wasting no time by working to expand our Democratic House Majority.
Presidential approval polls in 2020 are shaping up to be a lot like 2008 -- when Democrats continued the blue wave from the midterm. History is on our side, which means Democrats are poised to expand our House Majority even further. fivethirtyeight.com/features/the-2…
