Texas Republicans prepare for offensive from Democrats in 2020


In case you haven't noticed Democrats have gone all in on Texas for 2020.

That's especially the case with the retirements of Congressional Republicans including Sugar Land's Pete Olson. Texas GOP Chairman James Dickey says the Democrats have their eyes on one thing; redistricting.

"That can have a bigger impact because it will affect Texas for the next ten years," Dickey explained.

Democratic strategist Mustafa Tameez says the demographics favor the left now.

"What you're starting to see is the voting patterns match the demographics of the state," Tameez said, adding Texas became a majority minority state in 2004.

But Dickey says it's not that easy.

"It wasn't easy when we flipped Texas Republican thirty years ago. It's not going to be that easy now," Dickey stated.

The State GOP is planning to hire 150 field staffers for 2020. They had eight in 2018.
