Rep. Pete Gallego (D) ran for re-election in an increasingly conservative district. Despite the district voting for President Barack Obama in 2008, Republican Mitt Romney won the district in 2012 by 2.6 percentage points. Gallego was a member of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's Frontline Program. The program was designed to help protect vulnerable Democratic incumbents heading into the 2014 election.
