GOV: The Dallas Morning News reiterated its endorsement of Andrew White over Democratic runoff opponent Lupe Valdez. The paper endorsed White before the primary.

Meanwhile, Democratic groups planning a debate between White and Valdez cannot use the University of Texas at Austin as a venue. In a statement, a university spokesman said, “UT rules do not permit external groups to host debates … and do not allow student organizations to serve as conduits for outside groups to organize such events.”

HD13 open: In a daily pre-election report, the Ben Leman campaign reported raising an additional $17K, including $11K in kind from Texans for Lawsuit Reform PAC and $4K in kind from Associated Republicans of Texas Campaign Fund. The Jill Wolfskill campaign reported a $10K contribution from Empower Texans PAC, the group’s first direct investment in the race.
