Roger Williams elected to fifth term in Texas’ 25th Congressional District

Incumbent Roger Williams (R) defeated Julie Oliver (D) and Bill Kelsey (L) in the general election for Texas’ 25th Congressional District.

The race was one of 56 rematch elections in the U.S. House. Oliver challenged Williams in the 2018 election, losing 54% to 45%. In 2016, Williams carried the district 58% to 38% as Donald Trump (R) defeated Hillary Clinton (D) 55% to 40%.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) indicated it would target the district in 2020, adding Oliver to its ”Red to Blue” program. As of Oct. 14, Williams had raised $2.2 million to Oliver’s $1.8 million.
