Our Crib Sheets have been updated to show the complete list of Libertarian candidates, which we received today (Tuesday). We are still seeking the Green Party’s roster of candidates and the list of candidates who filed declarations of intent to run as independents from the Secretary of State. We have also updated our Municipal Elections page to list the offices scheduled to be on the ballots for the May 2 and November 3 general elections.

HD28 special: The Forward Majority PAC, a national Democratic group, released a new ad resurrecting allegations against Republican candidate Gary Gates stemming from his 13 children being taken by Child Protective Services in 2000.

Early voting for the runoff begins January 21.

HD85: Texans for Lawsuit Reform PAC endorsed Rep. Phil Stephenson (R-Wharton) for re-election.
