Runoff candidates who receive more than $1,890 from a single source on or after May 15 must disclose those contributions in daily pre-election reports (formerly known as telegram reports). These “late train” contributions typically come from a handful of major donors and go to “establishment” candidates, at least on the Republican side. This year was no exception.

Gov. Greg Abbott (R), Rep. Mayes Middleton (R-Wallisville), Associated Republicans of Texas PAC, Texans for Lawsuit Reform PAC and the Texas Assoc. of Realtors TREPAC combined have contributed over $1M to runoff candidates since May 15.
