Interview with Adam Milasincic

Adam Milasincic

We are officially in the home stretch of primary season. Early voting starts eight days – eight days! – from today. Between now and then I will be bringing you interviews from the contested State Rep primaries in Harris County. I limited myself to the races in Republican-held districts, because there’s only one of me and there were only so many weeks before the election. These are some of the districts in which any gains that are available to be made this year are likely to be made. We start in HD138, where two Democrats vie to face Rep. Dwayne Bohac in November. Adam Milasincic is one of those candidates, and was one of the first to file for a legislative office this cycle in Harris County. Milasincic is an attorney and litigator who touts his pro bono advocacy on behalf of inmates and immigrants, among others. He was also one of two primary candidates to be singled out by labor for his firm’s role in a recent lawsuit against the SEIU. I asked him about that, and about other things, in the interview:

    As a matter of transparency, I walked door to door for Dwayne Bohac in his early contests with Rep. Yarbrough, and have been on the same side of a legal case with Adam Milasincic professionally. Adam is a bright, credible contender, and for that matter, so is Jennifer Pool. But Adam is delusional if he thinks this is a Latino majority district. While all persons, legal and illegal, under 18 and above, may be 50% Latino, Texas Legislative Council data calculates that 28.8% of the citizens of voting age are Hispanic, and even fewer of the registered voters are, and typically those Latino registered voters come to the polls at a rate lower than either black or white voters. While it is true that Hillary Clinton edged Trump, a better measure of base Republican strength in the district would be the statewide judicial contests for which most voters have no clue who are the contenders. Those went about 52%R and 44%D in 2016 within the boundaries of this district. Usually Republicans do stronger in off year, gubernatorial election years. This year could be different; we see lots of organization and energy on the Democratic side, but to unseat an incumbent in a district with this degree of Republican advantage would be unlikely.
