HD76 open: Lisa Tamayo, a legislative aide to the retiring Sen. Jose Rodriguez (D-El Paso) and a former aide of Rep. Cesar Blanco (D-El Paso), established a campaign committee for a potential run for Blanco’s seat, which he is vacating to run for Rodriguez’s seat.

HD100 special: In an email to supporters, Democratic candidate Paul Stafford announced he was ending his special election campaign because his “ballot application, which was originally accepted by the Secretary of State, was rescinded” because he had not lived in the district for at least 12 months. Stafford voted in the May mayoral election from an address outside of the district. Stafford said he would run for the seat in the March primary. Nonprofit executive James Armstrong III, attorney Lorraine Birabil, business owner Daniel Clayton and former Dallas council member Sandra Crenshaw remain on the ballot.
