Big shakeup in DCCC's House battlefield this AM. The committee named 12 challengers to its "Red to Blue" program, added 3 members to its "Frontline" program, added 8 new GOP/Dem districts to its "In Play" list, and removed 6 GOP-held districts from its target list.

As many Texans have spent their October carving pumpkins with their families, our legislature has been carving our districts. In the spirit of my favorite holiday and my least favorite special session, I'm medicating with candy. And I'm sharing it all with you.

Buckle up.
1/25
Before we get to Texas, let's discuss the United Peeps of Halloween. The population of the UPH is 40% Ghost peeps, and 60% Pumpkin peeps.

2/25
If we want to cut Halloween into 5 equal districts, vertically gives the most ideal representation. Their population is equal to the members they get to send to their legislative chamber.

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.

Based on a variety of number-crunching sources, esp. @DKElections, it looks like there were at most 16 districts out of 435 that split their tickets between president/House in '20 - likely an all-time low.

For perspective, there were 83 such districts in '08 and 35 in '16.
Biden/R districts (9):

#CA21 Valadao
#CA25 Garcia
#CA39 Kim
#CA48 Steel
#FL27 Salazar
#NE02 Bacon
#NY24 Katko
#PA01 Fitzpatrick
#TX24 Van Duyne

Trump/D districts (7/8?):

#IL17 Bustos
#IA03 Axne
#ME02 Golden
#MI08 Slotkin
#NJ03 Kim
#NY22 Brindisi (?)
#PA08 Cartwright
#WI03 Kind
Correction to first tweet: at most 17, if Brindisi (D) prevails in #NY22. Would still be less than half of the 35 in 2016.

Of the nation's current 435 House districts, 226 voted for Trump in '16 and 209 voted for Clinton.

Based on my initial analysis, Biden carried 216, Trump carried 208 and 11 remain too close to call. But it's pretty clear to me Biden is on track for a narrow majority.
Here are the 12 Trump '16 districts I can say with confidence Biden has flipped blue so far:

#AZ01
#GA06
#GA07
#MN02
#NE02
#NH01
#NJ05
#NJ11
#PA17
#TX24
#VA02
#VA07

And the two Clinton '16 districts Trump has flipped red so far:

#FL26
#TX23
Here are the 11 districts that I'm still not 100% certain about ('16 winner):

#CA48 (Clinton)
#IL14 (Trump)
#IL17 (Trump)
#MI11 (Trump)
#NV03 (Trump)
#NJ03 (Trump)
#NY18 (Trump)
#NY19 (Trump)
#OH01 (Trump)
#TX15 (Clinton)
#TX28 (Clinton)

I'd be open to anyone's math on these.

🗳🇺🇸1. ¿Cómo saber que Texas está en juego este año? Mirad este anuncio de los republicanos para la campaña de varios candidatos al Congreso que se presentan por primera vez en distritos que los republicanos perdieron en 2018 —o cuyos congresistas se jubilan en 2020.

#TexasD3N
🗳🇺🇸2. La mayoría de ellos lo tienen difícil en noviembre. Dan Crenshaw, que ya es congresista desde 2018, y August Pfluger, mucho menos. El 24 en el que compite Beth Van Duyne, en los suburbs entre Dallas y Fort Worth, va a estar muuuuuy interesante. #TX24
🗳🇺🇸3. Por cierto, el vídeo completo lo tenéis en Facebook, que a mí no me deja subirlo entero.

Getting this thread going on what races to donate to….

Right now, 44 days out, is the best time to donate. A few states are early voting. Voters are paying attention and can still register.

Campaigns can still hire staff and pay for strategic, targeted ads and mailers.
Money thrown at races in Oct goes into media spin. Unclear if it's effective at persuasion.

Millions of $$$ from out of state donors, raised by national orgs, doesn't mean your race is competitive. So it's doubly important for us to pick a few races/states and be strategic.
It's sweet to ragedonate for RBG. But it's smarter to flip the Senate, cement the House majority, and win key states in the electoral college. All states and races aren't equal.

A few thousand $ to a House race or $1 million to an underfunded Senate race can make the difference.

.@candacefor24 overcame incredible odds growing up and has been fighting her whole life to ensure others don’t have to go through the hardships that she did. We’re endorsing Candace because she will fight for affordable housing, green jobs, and universal pre-K for #TX24 Image
Candace would make history as the first Afro-Latina member of Congress. We’re excited by her historic candidacy because it’s vital we have a Congress that reflects the diversity of America and gives voice to marginalized communities.
Candace is building a powerful and diverse grassroots movement to turn the Dallas-Forth Worth suburbs blue and fight for policies that lift up ordinary people, not wealthy donors.

House Rs are no longer w/in range of taking back the majority. But if there's a silver lining, it's that they're poised to elect far more women than they did in 2018, when their female ranks plummeted from 22 to 13 (!).
Four GOP women are basically guaranteed to come to Congress in 2021:

#GA14 Marjorie Taylor Greene
#IL15 Mary Miller
#MI10 Lisa McClain
#TN01 Diana Harshbarger

Four more w/ strong opportunities in open seats: #CO03 Boebert, #IN05 Spartz, #IA02 Miller-Meeks, #TX24 Van Duyne
Additionally, there are 7 more GOP women running against Dem incumbents in @CookPolitical's Toss Up column:

#IA01 Ashley Hinson
#MN07 Michelle Fischbach
#NM02 Yvette Herrell
#NY11 Nicole Malliotakis
#NY22 Claudia Tenney
#OK05 Terry Neese/Stephanie Bice (runoff)
#SC01 Nancy Mace

A devoted mother of five and a former public school teacher, @AmyKennedy715 has a deep commitment and passion for education and for mental health advocacy and policy that will greatly benefit her work in the House #ForThePeople of #NJ02. Image
.@candacefor24 is a mom and educator whose lived experience informs her commitment to finding solutions in education policy that create opportunity for children and families in underserved communities. She will make history as the first Afro-Latina in Congress. #TX24 Image
Margaret @GoodforFlorida is looking forward to making a real difference in the lives of working families in #FL16 by bringing to the House the same dedication and common sense problem-solving that always guided her service as an attorney, non-profit leader, and legislator. Image

Progressives won in each of tonight's ideologically contrasted House primaries in Texas -- Mike Siegel in #TX10, Candace Valenzuela in #TX24. Each of these districts is GOP-held & Democratic-targeted, and should be hotly disputed this fall down and way-up the ballot.
But there's also a big loss for progressives in Texas: State Senator Eddie Lucio, a conservative Democrat who backed the 2017 'bathroom bill' for instance, beat back challenger Sara Barrera. Some context here: texastribune.org/2020/07/09/tex…
The DCCC was ready to go tonight with an internal showing Valenzuela leading in this GOP-held open seat (#TX24), so a quick way for them to signal they're ready to prioritize it.

Big win for progressives in #TX24. Progressive Caucus + CBC + BOLD (CHC) + ASPIRE (CAPAC) + Warren Democrats and EMILY's list all backed @candacefor24 who has a double digit lead right now. More evidence that supporting candidates of color is path forward for progressives.
At the @DataProgress blog, @candacefor24 wrote about why she wants to end big money in politics: dataforprogress.org/blog/2020/7/9/…

And in @crookedmedia, @davidagordon9 and I highlighted Valenzuela as the future of the movement: crooked.com/articles/the-2…
And here's the @DataProgress poll that nailed @candacefor24's momentum after Olson was the plurality leader in the first round, first reported by @ZachMontellaro in Morning Score. politico.com/f/?id=00000173…
