Texas's 36th Congressional District is a new district that was created as a result of the 2010 Census.[1] The first candidates ran in the 2012 House elections for a seat in the 113th United States Congress.[2] Steve Stockman won the general election, and represented the new district. On December 9, 2013, Stockman announced that he would not seek reelection in 2014, and would instead challenge incumbent John Cornyn in the Republican senatorial primary.

Texas's 36th Congressional District is located in southeast Texas and includes all of Newton, Jasper, Tyler, Polk, Orange, Hardin, Liberty, and Chambers counties, plus portions of southeastern Harris County.[3] The Johnson Space Center is within the district.
