In the House elections incumbents ran in 31 of the 32 elections, and all but one won re-election. In the 23rd District incumbent Henry Bonilla received the most votes but not a majority. In a runoff election he lost to Democrat Ciro Rodriquez (pictured) who had been away from Congress after some redistricting in Texas. The 22nd District was an open seat, but flipped to the Democrats when Nick Lampson defeated S Sekula Gibbs.
