WASHINGTON — Since the days former U. S. House Speaker Sam Rayburn ruled the U. S. Capitol in the 1940s and 1950s, Texas dominance of the nation’s capital has been a given. Over a couple of generations, the state has sent a bipartisan roster of big hitters to D. C. , including presidents Lyndon B. Johnson, George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush. House Majority Leaders Dick Armey and Tom DeLay. Secretary of State James Baker III. and Bush White House advisers Karen Hughes, Karl Rove and Dan Bartlett.

Martin Frost, a Democrat who represented Arlington, said a future without visible leadership could not even be offset by the large size of the Texas congressional delegation. “Nothing replaces having people in top leadership whether it’s a committee chair or elected leadership,” he said. “The size of the delegation is not as important as having people in key leadership positions or people heading committees. Sarver, who has also been a senior adviser to Hutchison, remembers well the peak of Texas power in Washington: the early 2000s, when Bush was president, DeLay — a Republican congressman from Sugar Land and a former state legislator — was House... “It was an exciting time to be a Texan in Washington, D.
