In the U.S. House, four Democratic incumbent representatives will face no major-party opposition in the fall. Two incumbents in the Texas Senate also didn't draw opponents from the other party, and a slew of Texas House members have a virtually clear path to their seats. Due to runoff races, other seats might see someone elected in May rather than November.
