Race Details

This seat is currently vacant.  The previous congressman, Republican Rep. Blake Farenthold (CFG Lifetime Rating: 78%), recently resigned due to a personal scandal.  The district is solidly red – Trump beat Clinton by 24 points.  The Cook Report considers it an R+13 district.  Democrats are vying for the seat, but none of them are raising serious money.  So the winner of the Republican primary will be the heavy favorite in the general election.
