Texas Elections 2018

For both parties, the race between U.S. Rep. Pete Sessions and Colin Allred is bigger than one seat

Sessions, a Dallas Republican, is one of the most powerful Texans in Congress, making the battle for the seat about more than just determining which party controls the U.S. House.

Colin Allred, left, Democratic candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in Texas' 32nd congressional district, shakes hands with a supporter as U.S. Rep. John Lewis, D-Georgia, (blue suit and blue tie), greets well-wishers. The rally was held for candidates Allred and Texas U.S. Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke at Fretz Park in Dallas on Oct. 27, 2018.
