Yesterday was the deadline for primary runoff candidates to file 8-day-out campaign finance reports – our first look into their fundraising efforts since late February. These reports typically are made available online during the day today. Our Crib Sheets have been updated with totals from early filers, and we have some details on HD120 below.
SD1 open: The Texas Parent PAC endorsed Rep. David Simpson (R-Longview).
HD73: Steven Hotze of Conservative Republicans of Texas endorsed Rep. Doug Miller (R-New Braunfels). Hotze had previously endorsed Chris Byrd in the primary.
HD120 open: Barbara Gervin-Hawkins reported raising $61K – nearly double what she had raised before the primary – since February 21 and spending $46K. She has nearly $30K on hand.
