Early voting continues in jurisdictions holding runoff elections on June 22. We will have live coverage of Saturday’s runoff elections beginning at 7 p.m. CDT. We will focus primarily on:

  • Abilene – P5 runoff between incumbent Kyle McAlister and challenger Cory Clements
  • Mount Pleasant – mayoral runoff between former State Board of Education member Thomas Ratliff (R) and Tracy Craig, who received 6 more votes than Ratliff in the May 4 election; and
  • Orange – P5 (at large) runoff between incumbent Bill Mello and Caroline Mazzola Hennigan and the D4 runoff between incumbent Annette Pernell and Mary McKenna.

We will also check into the Wichita Falls ISD tax ratification bond election, which has drawn the interest of the Arlington-based Texans for Freedom PAC, which also opposed the city of Wichita Falls’s bond proposals in 2018. It is opposed by Building the Falls Future PAC, whose treasurer is former Rep. David Farabee (D-Wichita Falls).

HD26: Richmond resident Matthew Morgan established a campaign committee for a potential challenge of Rep. Rick Miller (R-Sugar Land). We were unable to identify him conclusively.
