The district covers a broad, mostly rural, area stretching from La Joya in Western Hidalgo County, swinging north around Mission, McAllen and Edinburg, then dipping south and taking in a slice of northern Weslaco and Harlingen. Local cities included in the new district are La Joya, Sullivan, Peñitas and just a small part of far northwest McAllen.
