Texas's 32nd congressional district
|Texas's 32nd congressional district|
Texas's 32nd congressional district - since January 3, 2013.
|Current Representative||Pete Sessions (R–Dallas)|
Texas's 32nd district of the United States House of Representatives serves a suburban area of northeastern Dallas, Texas. The district was created after the 2000 census when Texas went from 30 seats to 32 seats. It was then modified in 2011 after the 2010 United States Census. The current representative is Pete Sessions.
Among other communities, the district includes part of the North Dallas neighborhood of Preston Hollow, which has been the home of George W. Bush since the end of his Presidency. While it previously contained much of the Western Dallas County area, including Irving, since the redistricting in 2011–2012, the district now covers mostly the Northern and Eastern Dallas County areas, and a small portion of Collin County.
In 2018, civil rights attorney Colin Allred won a heavily contested primary for the Democratic Nomination, and will run against Pete Sessions in November.

In the 2004 election, Martin Frost, the Democratic representative from Texas's 24th congressional district, who had been redistricted out of his district in Fort Worth, Arlington, and parts of Dallas, decided to run against Sessions rather than challenge Kenny Marchant or Joe Barton. Sessions benefited from President George W. Bush's endorsement to win in this Republican-leaning district.

In 2016, Sessions won an election contested only by third party candidates, as the Democrats did not nominate a challenger. Sessions was reelected to his 11th term.
