2022 State Elections

With 31 lawmakers moving on, the Texas State Legislature has room to get more conservative

More than 24 members of the Texas Legislature are running for a different seat next year or flat out retiring, creating many elected vacancies that could push both the Senate and the House to become even more red.

Most of the outgoing legislators are conservative establishment politicians with years of experience, opening up seats for younger and more ideologically extreme replacements. In many cases, their districts were redrawn to strengthen the GOP’s hold on the Legislature, eliminating all but a few of the battleground contests that tend to attract more moderate candidates.

These changes, along with with recently drawn 2022 Redistricting maps leave little opening for Democrats to gain ground in In the General Elections next year, have laid the groundwork for an even more conservative Legislature, even as Republicans toast the 2021 legislative session as the most conservative in the state’s history.

TCFA will be sharing more detailed election information very soon. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Robert Howden at (512) 320-8356
