A brand new Democratic ballot finds Joe Biden forward in a district Trump received by 15 factors 4 years in the past

Consequently, the 25th is extra rural (and whiter) than many of the suburban seats in Texas which can be on the high of Democrats’ goal checklist. As DCCC government director Lucinda Guinn put it, the district had solely been “possibly on the outer edges of our battlefield,” however which will now change. In 2018, Sen. Ted Cruz solely carried this seat 52-47 over Beto O’Rourke, so it is believable that the leftward march right here is constant.

The most important issue for Oliver, although, could also be getting her title out: She had just $90,000 in her campaign account as of June 30, versus $1.three million for Williams. If the DCCC’s ballot is correct, Oliver’s been buoyed by the rising tide that has lifted so many Democrats, however to get previous the incumbent, she’ll want the sources to successfully talk with voters.
