In this April 7, 2018 photo, Democratic congressional candidate Colin Allred, a former NFL linebacker and civil rights attorney, addresses a town hall in Dallas. The area has for years embodied country club Republicanism, but Allred is hoping that changing demographics and an electorate becoming better educated can help him upset longtime Republican Rep. Pete Sessions. If Democrats are going to retake the House in November, they may have to win in some unlikely places: Sessions' Dallas district, and similar Republican-held territory in Houston, Miami, Southern California and Cincinnati.
