    I agree with you regarding the demographic changes. One of the reasons that I don't think this district will change is because it is surrounded almost entirely by the white Evangelical population, a large portion whom happen to be renters. Land and cheap apartments abound. Churches hold great influence in this area and the "don't mess with Texas" attitude runs strong. While there are bright spots for D's (Wendy Davis and Marc Veasy), it will be a long time IMO before the winds change here.
