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.
