I don't know if this has ever discussed before, but why exactly was there a streak of Democratic counties south of the very Republican Texas Panhandle for so long? Public works? Cotton or tobacco subsidies? Something else?

Out of those three, maybe public works

Part of it was also just ancestral leanings--some counties were populated by Southern-stock people who migrated to Texas.
