2018 Democratic nominee Adam Milasincic announced he would not run again in 2020 and instead endorsed Houston attorney Akilah Bacy. Milasincic lost to Rep. Dwayne Bohac (R-Houston) by just 47 votes out of more than 48K votes cast in 2018, 50.0%-49.9%.

Akilah is unapologetic about her progressive agenda, which is fueled by her desire to see equity and justice encompass us all. Her desire began before she entered the race for the Texas Legislature and will continue with her all the way to the Capitol.

Normally, a candidate who loses by just 47 votes decides to run again, especially after the incumbent announces they’re retiring. But in this case, 2018’s Democrat decided to step aside and back Akilah Bacy, a tireless legal warrior for the community and one of the most compelling candidates I’ve interviewed here at Progressives Everywhere.

It’s a close decision, but we feel that a vote for Akilah is the best choice for Democrats in this district..Her focus is on core issues — education, healthcare, flooding, climate, employment rights, restorative justice — all issues voters in her district care deeply about...But we are impressed most by Bacy’s deep connections to the district and her strong legal acumen.
