Filing for partisan nomination or an independent candidacy for the 2022 general election continues through December 13. Our Crib Sheets are updated frequently with the latest candidate filings.

SD2 (Safe R): Sen. Bob Hall (R-Edgewood) filed for re-election, ending any speculation that he might retire.

SD11 open (Likely R): Former Texas Republican Party vice chair Robin Armstrong filed for the seat being vacated by Sen. Larry Taylor (R-Friendswood), setting up a contested primary against Rep. Mayes Middleton (R-Wallisville).

Rep. Greg Bonnen (R-Friendswood) announced he would not run for open SD11 and would seek re-election, for which he filed on the first day of the filing period. This is an example of a candidate filing that has not yet been reported by the county party, which is why our “retirement watch” list (See below) is longer than it should be.

HD57 open (Likely R): Texans for Lawsuit Reform PAC endorsed Richard Hayes (R).
