Matchups for Each Statewide Race in Texas

With primary runoffs concluded, party nominations for each of the Texas legislature’s 181 districts are set — finalizing the matchups for November’s general election. With Democrat Joe Biden in the White House, Republicans hope not only to maintain but build on their current 18 to 13 advantage in the Senate and 84 to 65 advantage in the House.

Meanwhile, Democrats once again hope to capture the wave of success they experienced last midterm election when they flipped 12 seats in the House and two in the Senate.

Below is a list of the general election matchups and partisan ratings of each district. The Texan’s Texas Partisan Index analyzes past election results to calculate partisan leaning, showing which party has an advantage.

Incumbents are denoted with an asterisk. See the list of statewide matchups here.
