Congratulations to Jake Ellzey, the newest member of the U.S. House!
Yesterday, Ellzey beat Susan Wright in the run-off for Texas’s 10th Congressional District. Both Ellzey and Wright were Republicans and they were running to replace a Republican, Susan’s late husband, Ron Wright. Trump endorse Susan Wright so this was considered by some to be an upset victory but Trump only won the 10th district by 3% in 2020, despite the fact that it’s usually a very Republican district. Tarrant County is certainly more Republican than Dallas County but it is in no way Trump Country.
