COMP: The San Antonio Express-News endorsed Joi Chevalier in the Democratic primary to challenge Comp. Glenn Hegar (R).

AGRIC: Grassroots America We the People endorsed challenger Trey Blocker over Comm. Sid Miller (R). Before the 2014 primary, the group recommended Miller over his four primary rivals for what was then an open seat. Earlier this month, the group hosted both candidates for a debate in Tyler. Meanwhile, the candidates met in a McLennan Co. forum. The Houston Chronicle’s Andrea Zelinski reported that Miller was well received and Blocker’s jabs “fell flat.” Miller is from nearby Stephenville.

SD5: Texans for Lawsuit Reform PAC endorsed Sen. Charles Schwertner (R-Georgetown).
