SUMMARY: U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar's corruption trial will occur next spring after the 2024 Election Day. The Laredo Democrat was indicted for bribery, money laundering, and illegal activities with the Azerbaijani government. The trial, originally set for July, has been postponed to spring 2025 with pretrial activities in December. Both federal prosecutors and Cuellar's defense requested the delay, approved by Judge Lee Rosenthal. Cuellar, denying the allegations, will continue his re-election campaign in Texas' 28th Congressional District, a highly competitive area. Following his indictment, national Republicans have added Cuellar to their targets for the upcoming election.

SUMMARY: U.S. Rep. Colin Allred, a Dallas Democrat aiming to unseat U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, commented on President Biden's poor debate performance, expressing disappointment but avoiding whether Biden should seek reelection. Allred, under pressure to address Biden's perceived lack of fitness for office, stated he hasn't been part of the conversations about Biden's next steps and remains focused on defeating Cruz. He has kept some distance from Biden, particularly on immigration issues. While some Texas Democrats like Rep. Lloyd Doggett have called for Biden to withdraw his candidacy, others have yet to clearly state their position on Biden's reelection.

Among Texans, Kamala Harris is even less popular than Biden

SUMMARY: A recent poll by the University of Houston/Texas Southern University reveals Kamala Harris has a 56% unfavorability rating among Texas voters, worse than Biden's 55% and Trump's 49%. Conducted before the June 27 presidential debate, the poll suggests Harris faces challenges winning Texas voters. Despite this, national polls show Harris gaining ground against Trump. Renée Cross from Hobby School suggests Harris needs to improve outreach to voters of color and younger voters. Meanwhile, a Harris candidacy could benefit Democratic U.S. Rep. Colin Allred in his Senate race against Ted Cruz. Harris's favorability has risen slightly to 42% since January.
