NTX Midterm Election Results

2022 Mid-Term Election Report for the North Texas Region

As results came in late last night and early into the morning, the new North Texas State & Federal Delegations have officially begun to take shape.

At the national level, we are waiting on key elections in Arizona, Georgia, and Nevada before we can call the final results of the election. The balance of power is yet to be determined, but all signs point to a divided Congress for the 118th. There is still a chance republicans can take control of both the House and Senate, but the margins are razor thin and closing across the country.

DFW Welcomes New Congressional Members

In the North Texas Delegation, we welcome two new members of Congress. Congressman-elect Keith Self (R) will succeed Van Taylor to represent the 3rd congressional district in Collin and Hunt Counties. Former State Representative Jasmine Crockett (D) is now Congresswoman-elect filling the vacancy of retiring Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson in Congressional District 30, which serves the southern portion of Dallas County.

Statewide Election Outcomes

Republican candidates swept every statewide race despite facing well-funded and energized Democrat opponents. In the highest profile race in the state, Greg Abbott defeated challenger Beto O’Rourke and will return for a third term as Governor. Fellow incumbents Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, Attorney General Ken Paxton, Comptroller Glenn Hegar, Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, and Railroad Commissioner Wayne Christian also claimed victories in their re-election bids. Texas welcomes a new Land Commissioner, Dawn Buckingham (R), to office. As the only newly elected statewide official, Buckingham left her role in the Texas Senate representing Central Texas to succeed George P. Bush as the head of the General Land Office.

11 Vacant House and Senate Seats were Claimed Across North Texas

With the retirement of Senator Jane Nelson and Senator Beverly Powell choosing not to run again due to redistricting, two longtime House members set their sights on the Legislature’s Upper Chamber. New to the Texas Senate but familiar to voters in the Metroplex, we welcome Senator-elect Phil King (R) of Parker County to Texas Senate District 10 and Senator-elect Tan Parker (R) of Denton County to Senate District 12.

The North Texas Delegation welcomes nine new members of the Texas House who are filling seats in our four most populous counties.

Representative-elect Fredrick Frazier (R), House District 61

Representative-elect Mihaela Plesa (D), House District 70
