Non­profit ex­ec­ut­ive Ed Mei­er (D) will chal­lenge House Rules Chair Pete Ses­sions (R) in 2018.

“Mei­er, 40, is a baby-faced policy-nerd polit­ic­al nobody, al­beit one whose résumé is im­press­ive.” He was a “field or­gan­izer for Re­gina Mon­toya’s cam­paign against Pete Ses­sions in 2000; le­gis­lat­ive aide for Texas State Rep­res­ent­at­ive Helen Gid­dings … con­sult­ant at McKin­sey & Com­pany; ad­viser to the U.S. Deputy Sec­ret­ary of State, fo­cused on mil­it­ary-to-ci­vil­ian trans­ition in Ir­aq; COO at Dal­las-area edu­ca­tion non­profit Big Thought; dir­ect­or of policy out­reach for the Clin­ton cam­paign, then co-ex­ec­ut­ive dir­ect­or of the Clin­ton trans­ition team; in­ter­im ex­ec­ut­ive dir­ect­or of Big Thought through this year, un­til he can find his suc­cessor and con­cen­trate full time on his polit­ic­al bid.” (D Magazine)

Hil­lary Clin­ton won the dis­trict in 2016 and it’s a tar­get seat for Demo­crats.
