    Once the PVI is re-calculated, TX-15 will probably be D+6 or so. Obama won 57% there in 2008 and it looks like he probably got about the same percentage this year. I doubt it would be competitive if open.

    •  Probably more (0+ / 0-)

      He could have gotten up to 60% there this time, just eyeballing it.

        After doing some more math, depending on where the votes came from in Hidalgo county - and remember that this district takes in some of the more Republican areas (ofcourse, relatively) of the county - Obama's percentage in two party vote could be anywhere between 49% and 55%.
