How do we arrive at this prediction?
Of the 150 House seats, Democrats failed to field a candidate in 58 Districts. Granted, a great number of these seats are horrible territory for Democrats and they'd likely be sacrificial lambs, but consider this: A working majority in the Texas House is 76 seats. Republicans are already 76% of the way to a working majority. All those unchallenged seats free up money to be spent to try and hold their Super Majority.
Republicans only need 18 more seats to maintain their majority. Who doesn't think they'll make it?
