A national Democratic super PAC is pumping over $6 million into the fight for the Texas House majority.
The group, Forward Majority, plans to spend $6.2 million across 18 races that will likely determine who controls the lower chamber in January, according to an announcement first shared with The Texas Tribune. The money will go toward TV, digital ads and mail in each district.
“We have a once in a generation opportunity to establish a Democratic majority ahead of redistricting and cement Texas’ status as the biggest battleground state in the country,” Forward Majority spokesperson Ben Wexler-Waite said in a statement.
Democrats are currently nine seats away from the House majority — and growing confident in their chances of capturing the chamber. They have released a slew of internal polls in recent weeks showing close races in many of their targeted districts, with the Democratic nominees clearly ahead in some.
