Henry Cuellar Wins Re-Election in Texas US House Race

Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) has won re-election in Texas district 28, defeating his Republican challenger Cassy Garcia. His victory was not surprising given he has represented this district since 2005, and still enjoys a significant level of popularity. Garcia is one of three Latina Republican candidates whose race was being closely watched. But it appears Cuellar is simply too entrenched at this point.


Cuellar is something of an aberration on the left. Indeed, during primary season, he defeated his opponent, Jessica Cisneros, a progressive endorsed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

He has been a vocal critic of the Biden administration’s mishandling of the ongoing migrant crisis, and is the sole remaining pro-life Democrat in the House. This indicates he is one of few Democrats who has not embraced the far left, which might have played an important role in his retaining his seat.
