As there is one Democratic-held open legislative seat of interest this cycle, so too is there one formerly Democratic-held seat to be won back. HD144 was redrawn as a Latino-majority swing district in 2011 after being held by a Republican all last decade. It was won in 2012 by Democrats, then lost by a small margin in the 2014 debacle when turnout levels were down. Three challengers face each other to see who can try to win it back this year. Cody Ray Wheeler is a Pasadena City Council member, one of two Latino members of Council who was targeted by Mayor Isbell’s hotly contested redistricting scheme. A veteran of the Marine Corps, Wheeler was deployed twice to Iraq and received multiple awards for his service. He is working towards his Masters in Public Administration at the University of Houston. Here’s the interview:
