As of the end of the day (Friday), there are just three incumbents that we expect are seeking re-election for whom we have not seen a confirmation that they have filed:

  • Statewide: none
  • Senate: none
  • House: none
  • Congress: U.S. Reps. Colin Allred (D-Dallas), Joaquin Castro (D-San Antonio) and Ron Wright (R-Arlington).

At least 541 people have filed as a Democrat or Republican for federal, statewide and legislative office in Texas. We have not seen any candidate lists from the Libertarian or Green Parties. Monday is the deadline for candidates to file for a spot on the primary ballot or to be considered for nomination at a minor party convention. Our Crib Sheets have the latest information on who we can confirm has filed as the deadline approaches.
