Examples of Our Crib Sheets

Candidate Lists Include Campaign Finance Data

Our Crib Sheets are lists of candidates who have filed, announced or are publicly thinking about running for federal and state office in Texas. They are frequently updated with the latest filings, announcements and rumors throughout an election cycle. Campaign finance results are updated as new reports are filed – typically every six months and just before an election – and we keep a running total on contributions and expenditures during the two-year election cycle.

Texas Election Source curate candidate lists, which we call Crib Sheets, that include the latest campaign finance totals, recent election results, biographical notes and other information for:

  • Texas statewide elected offices (9 constitutional offices and 18 judicial offices)
  • Texas Senate (31 senators, half of which are up for election at any one time)
  • Texas House of Representatives (150 representatives)
  • Texas Congressional delegation (36 representatives and 2 senators), and
  • Special elections for any of these offices.

An example of our current Crib Sheets is shown below.
