He’s not running.

He just announced yesterday he’s focused on helping flip the Texas state house.

And if he did jump in at the last minute he’d get savaged for being the white guy who snatched the race from female and POC candidates by the same people who spent the last year begging him to run for Senate.

good.  He can be an asset.

Rick Miller (R) of Sugar Land isn't seeking reelection in the TX House 26th district following comments on his primary opponents largely seen as racist. Yes, this was in the Republican Party thread, but it belongs here, because this will be a very competitive district in 2020 and one that the Dems really ought to flip if they are going to take control of the State House.

Miller was a very strong candidate so his exit is a real blow to the Texas GOP. He mopped the floor with his Dem opponent, Sarah Demerchant, by 15 points in 2016 but won by less than 5 points in their 2018 rematch. Demerchant is running again but is likely going to get beat in the Dem primary by Rish Oberoi, who is killing it in fundraising and a better fit for the district (he's of South Asian descent, ahem). He'll gladly take your $20 if you want to flip the House next year.
