Jasmine Felicia Crockett (born March 29, 1981) is an American lawyer and politician who is the U.S. representative from Texas's 30th congressional district since 2023. Her district covers most of South Dallas County, central Dallas, Dallas Love Field Airport and parts of Tarrant County. A member of the Democratic Party, she previously represented the 100th district in the Texas House of Representatives.

In the 118th Congress, Crockett serves as the Democratic freshman class representative between the House Democratic leadership and the approximately 35 newly elected Democratic members.[1]

Early life and career

Crockett was born in St. Louis, Missouri. She attended Mary Institute and St. Louis Country Day School and Rosati-Kain, an all-girls Catholic high school in St. Louis, Missouri.[2] She graduated from Rhodes College in 2003 with a Bachelor of Arts in business administration. As an undergraduate, Crockett planned to become an anesthesiologist or certified public accountant before deciding to attend law school, which she stated was due to experiencing a hate crime while attending college.[3] She later attended the University of Houston Law Center, graduating in 2006 with a Juris Doctor. Representative Crockett was a member of the National Bar Association, as well, with the Dallas Black Criminal Bar Association.[4]

Representative Crockett completed law school and passed the bar in 2006. She then became a public defender for Bowie County. She formed a law firm. The firm was notable for taking pro bono cases of Black Lives Matter activists.[3]

Crockett is a Baptist,[5][6] and a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.[7]

Texas House of Representatives

In 2019, after Eric Johnson vacated his seat in the Texas House to serve as mayor of Dallas, a special election was held on November 5 with a runoff on January 28, 2020 for the remainder of his term, which Lorraine Birabil won.[8] Crockett challenged Birabil in the 2020 Democratic primary. She narrowly defeated Birabil in a primary runoff, advancing to the November 2020 general election, which she won unopposed. She assumed office in January 2021.[9][10]

Elections

2022

On November 20, 2021, incumbent U.S. Representative Eddie Bernice Johnson of Texas's 30th congressional district announced she would not seek reelection in 2022.[11] Four days later, Crockett declared her candidacy for the seat. Johnson simultaneously announced that she was backing Crockett.[12][13] Crockett also received extensive financial support from Super PACs aligned with the cryptocurrency industry, with Sam Bankman-Fried's Protect Our Future PAC giving $1 million in support of her campaign.[14] In the Democratic primary election, Crockett and Jane Hope Hamilton, an aide to Marc Veasey, advanced to a runoff election,[15] which Crockett won.[16] She then won the general election on November 8.[17] Crockett was chosen to be the 118th Congress's freshman class representative.[1]

Tenure

Crockett supports supplying military aid to the Ukrainian military during their war with Russia.

Crockett was among the 46 Democrats who voted against final passage of the Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2023 in the House.[18]

She voted to provide Israel with support following 2023 Hamas attack on Israel.[19][20]

Crockett voted in favor of three military aid package supplementals for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan respectively in April 2024, along with most Democrats.[21][22][23]
