Siegel and Gandhi advance to TX-10 Democratic primary runoff

Mike Siegel and Pritesh Gandhi advanced to a Democratic primary runoff election for Texas’ 10th Congressional District on March 3. With 97% of precincts reporting, Siegel received 44.0% of the vote, and Gandhi received 33.1%. Shannon Hutcheson was in third with 23.4%. The runoff will be held May 26, 2020. The winner of the primary runoff will run in the general election on November 3, 2020.

One of the main issues in the race was healthcare. Gandhi said he would support “Medicare for all that want it.” Siegel said he supported a single-payer, universal healthcare option.

All 435 House districts will be up for election on November 3, 2020, and the results will determine the partisan balance of the U.S. House in the 117th Congress. As of March 2020, Democrats have a 232-197 advantage over Republicans. If Republicans win 18 Democratic-controlled districts, they will win control of the House. If Democrats hold as many districts, they will maintain their control of the chamber.
