U.S. House of Representatives - composition by political party affiliation 2019

In 2019, 23 of the representatives from Texas in the U.S. House of Representatives were Republicans. This is compared to 13 Texan representatives who were Democrats.

115th Congress

The 116th Congress is the meeting between the United States Senate and House of Representatives commencing January 3, 2019, and ending January 3, 2021. This Congress is sitting during the 2020 presidential election. While the Senate remains controlled by the Republican Party from the 115th Congress, the Democratic Party regained control of the House of Representatives. Aside from the presidential election, probably the most important issue that occurred during the 116th Congress is the impeachment of President Trump by the House of Representatives in December 2019, followed by his acquittal by the Senate in February 2020. Voting in both stages of the impeachment process followed partisan lines, creating controversy over the neutrality of the process. Despite this controversy, a majority of Americans from across the political spectrum still believe that impeachment is an important tool for democracy.

Demographics of Congress

During the 116th Congress, there was an increase in Black, Asian, and Hispanic Representatives. There was also a significant increase in the number of female senators, reaching one quarter of all senators for the first time in U.S. history. Over 85 percent of all congress members identified as some denomination of Christianity, rising to over 99 percent for Republicans.
