Texas's congressional districts since 2013.[1]

These are tables of congressional delegations from the State of Texas to the United States Senate and United States House of Representatives.

The current dean of the Texas delegation is Representative Eddie Bernice Johnson (TX-30), having served in the House since 1993.

Republicans have complete control of the congressional redistricting process in Texas, as any new maps are drawn and passed by the Republican-held state legislature and signed into law by the Republican governor.[2] Texas is one of the most gerrymandered states in the country.[3][4] In the 2016 United States House of Representatives elections, Republicans won nearly four more seats than they otherwise would have if not for gerrymandering.[4]

U.S. House of Representatives[edit]

Current districts and representatives[edit]

The delegation consists of 36 members, with 23 Republicans and 13 Democrats.

Starting in the 2022 midterms, per the 2020 United States census, Texas will gain two new congressional seats.[5]
