Texas Congressional Map Plan Altered, Keeping Jackson Lee's District Safe

Houston Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee's House District appears safe.

The Texas House and Senate agreed to a plan over the weekend keeping her home in the 18th District along with the Third Ward, downtown Houston, and Texas Southern University.

The original redrawn map set up a potential primary challenge between Jackson Lee and Congressman Al Green. The two are the only Black congressional representatives from Houston.

State Representative Senfronia Thompson tells Houston Chronicle she's grateful for the change because it's a huge victory for Harris County.
