New polling shows a neck-in-neck race for Texas' 21st U.S. Congressional District west and southeast of Austin, possibly a harbinger of state races in November.
Former state senator Democrat Wendy Davis, a name reviled by Republican party faithful in the Lone Star State, is challenging incumbent Chip Roy, a freshman conservative and former chief of staff for Senator Ted Cruz. New polling shows Roy with a one point advantage, 45 to 44 percent.
That is concerning to state Republicans as Davis has been able to out-raise Roy with $2.8 million cash on hand to Roy's $1.7 million.
This week Larry's Sobato's Crystal Ball has moved the race from "leaning Republican" to "a toss up."
