"Dallas is a classic example of a district republicans drew in 2016. They drew the 32nd district of Texas, which is North Dallas, to be a safe republican seat, but over time, those suburban professionals have moved away from the Republican Party because they're frankly questioning their partisan identity in the age of Trump.  "And that district voted by a point for Hillary Clinton in 2016. Pete Sessions, a Republican who has been there since 1996, was the chair of the NRCC for two terms, suddenly finds himself in a very very tough race against a Democrat named Colin Allred, who played four seasons for the Tennessee Titans, and more importantly for this race was a high school football star at Hillcrest High School in Dallas. He was raised by a single mother who was a public school teacher, went to Baylor and became a civil rights lawyer. He said that he wanted to play in the NFL essentially to be able to pay for law school. So he has got an appealing profile against a republican who has been there for a very long time. It's these candidate contrasts, these different biographies that can be so problematic for the in-party when the voters want change."
