Deadlines: Tomorrow (Monday) is the deadline to register to vote for the November 5 general, constitutional amendment and special elections.

HD13/CD13: Clarendon resident Dwight Hardin established a state campaign committee for what appears to be a potential challenge of Rep. Ben Leman (R-Iola).

Accordingly, we have listed Hardin on our Federal Crib Sheet. We were otherwise unable to determine his partisan affiliation, but there aren’t many Democrats left in Donley Co.

HD28 special: The Texas Parent PAC endorsed Eliz Markowitz, the lone Democrat in the field.
