Yes. "Only" 55-41 Trump this year, but that's more then enough....After all - it's Northern Dallas suburbs...

Raging moderate. Big fan of "mavericks" (in all parties) and big non-lover of "reliable foot soldiers" (in all parties as well). Very much "anti-tea party". Political Matrix - E: -0.26, S: -3.48. Like to collect bans on partisan sites (4-5 on DKE (+ SSP) and on RRH).

Totally safe R, although that district is significantly less white than it was in 2010 when it was drawn. This seat stays in Republican hands easily in 2018, though the 2020 redistricting might end up changing it from Safe R to Likely R depending on how it's redrawn.

Van Taylor seems to have first refusal. It's been pointed out though that the Texas Senate is a pretty good gig and jumping ship for Congress is actually uncommon for State Senators

Huh, I've actually heard of Van Taylor.

He has a very punchable looking face and is a total weasel.

He got elected to the state house in 2010 running as this Tea Party Outsider Non-Politician. Never mind that he had already run for congress in the 17th district against Chet Edwards in 2006 and lost. And before that, he was living in some ritzy New York suburb working in finance. He went to Harvard and inherited a ton of family money.

This is behind a paywall so I can't read it, and it's not the best source anyway, but it says that Van Taylor is "expected to run" whatever that means.

Sad to see a good man and a true patriot retire from Congress. The GOP can all learn something from him. Truly he is one of the greatest people I have ever met and I wish him well.

"Moving Van" Taylor found another seat he wants to buy with mommy and daddy's money. Yay!

The Texas legislature is probably cheering on Taylor's soon to come departure from their chambers
