We continue our analysis of potentially competitive Texas House districts with an exploration of Brazos, Brazoria and Fort Bend Counties (We admit we are stretching the definition of Southeastern Texas to include Brazos Co.).
HD14 (Lean Republican) sits entirely within the home county of Texas A&M Univ., and the campus is right at its heart. Comprising nearly all of Bryan and College Station, HD14 has been held by Rep. John Raney (R-Bryan), himself an Aggie, since he won a December 2011 special election.
