Early Voting continues for the November 6 general and constitutional amendment election. Turnout continues to be very light across most of the state. Fewer than 64K of the 9.8M registered voters (0.65%) in the state’s 15 most populous counties voted early in person or by mail through Wednesday, the third day of the early voting period. This is half the turnout from the first three days of the 2015 general election.

GOV: Former Balch Springs Mayor Cedric Davis re-established a campaign committee for a potential challenge of Gov. Greg Abbott (R). We previously reported that Davis had announced plans to run as a Democrat. Davis won one of five races for mayor, claiming an unexpired term in a 2008 special election (53%). He lost a 2007 race (20%) and, following his election to mayor, lost three consecutive races to Carrie Gordon (39%, 38% and 23%). Davis unsuccessfully ran for open HD110 in the 2012 Democratic primary (24%) and unsuccessfully challenged Rep. Helen Giddings (D-Dallas) in the 2006 Democratic primary (10%).
