Meet Democrats Running For Governor; Heated Races For Texas House, Senate

The general election is November 6.

Who will I be voting for?

Since this is Texas, and West U runs moderate but leans toward the conservative side of things, the primary is the race Davis has to win to secure her seat, since the midterms will be just a formality.

Thanks to an interview with CNN's Manu Raju, it's clear that Texas Republican Sen. Kathaleen Wall, who is running for a southeast Texas seat now held by Rep. Ted Poe, is an example.

Texas Democrats, however, have not won a statewide race for posts such as governor or US senator in more than two decades.

In Washington, though, there's a hint of worry about what kinds of candidates can win in Republican-leaning areas Democrats may need to regain majorities on Capitol Hill and dent GOP advantages in some statehouses.

Republicans Cody Harris of Palestine, Linda Timmerman of Streetman and Thomas McNutt of Corsicana all filed for the House seat, and Democrat Wesley Ratcliff of Oakwood will also seek the office.

"Not as high as the state average actually, so it could have been better", Nueces County Clerk Kara Sands said. He contends that Bush, who is facing a serious primary challenge, is trying to convince voters that he's something he's not. And incumbent Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, one of Texas' most colorful politicians, faces a fight from Trey Blocker.

Also, on the ballot but drawing no opposition on the Republican ticket is the position of State Representative, District 83, a seat now held by Dustin Burrows, who is in line to keep that seat.




In most years for Denton County, Democrats take in only 10-25 percent of the total primary votes.

There are also numerous contested races for district judge, county court at law judge, precinct chair on both ballots. Voters are showing up in primaries to vote for Democrats.

Feinstein still leads in the polls and may not be seriously threatened in California's so-called jungle primary system, which places all candidates, regardless of party, on the same first ballot, with the top two vote-getters advancing to a second round of voting.

In fundraising email last week, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott warned supporters, "We've seen a surge of liberal enthusiasm in deep red states like Georgia, Alabama and Oklahoma". This means voters can decide every two years whether they'd rather help pick the Republican or the Democratic nominees (or hold out and go to third-party conventions). If you haven't voted already, please check out our Texas Voter Guide to see where the candidates appearing on your ballot stand on cannabis reform.

To elections officials, however, it doesn't matter how many voters head to the polls Tuesday.

You can vote at any of those locations, just keep in mind to bring a photo ID. The legal wrangling over the state's requirements has turned rather complicated.

Texas allows voting using machines that do not provide a paper record and fails to mandate statewide post-election audits to test the accuracy of election outcomes.

A Texas license to carry a handgun (issued by DPS).

So, what if I don't have one of the seven approved forms of ID? The supporting documents include an original, certified birth certificate; a valid voter registration certificate; or a copy or original of one of the following: current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or other government document that shows the voter's name and an address.
