The deadline to file for a place on the 2018 ballot is 6 p.m. local time today. Please see our Crib Sheets for candidates’ filing status. As far as we can tell, Court of Criminal Appeals Judge Barbara Hervey (R); Reps. Carol Alvarado (D-Houston) and Dawnna Dukes (D-Austin); and State Board of Education member Erika Beltran (D-Dallas) have not yet filed for re-election. They may have already filed, but we have received any confirmation from the candidates or the parties.

GOV: Austin resident James Jolly Clark filed in the crowded Democratic primary to challenge Gov. Greg Abbott (R). He is at least the ninth Democrat to file for the race.
