Hurd is the sixth Republican in two weeks to throw in the towel
DCCC Spokesperson Avery Jaffe issued the following statement tonight after Congressman Will Hurd (TX-23) announced his retirement from Congress.
“Like we said last week, Republicans across the Lone Star State are terrified of losing their seats in 2020 and Will Hurd just joined the list. Hurd has been a lockstep supporter of the worst of Washington Republicans’ policies and he sealed his fate when he pledged to vote for Donald Trump in 2020. Democrats will win this seat and if Will Hurd doesn’t believe he can keep his job in a changing Texas, his colleagues must be having second thoughts too.”
