Dear Subscriber,

Early voting is underway. Counting several large counties’ turnout today, overall turnout for the runoff has pushed past 2% (both parties combined).

Attached please find our latest update. Highlights include:

  • Several dark money groups are investing in runoff races.
  • More sheriffs support Branch.
  • Rafael Cruz thinks Christian would be “dynamite” as RRC.
  • Jerry Patterson re-starts anti-Patrick PAC?

Also attached is our look at the campaign finance numbers and donations for the key statewide House runoffs. Like the statewide and Senate races, the House runoffs reflect the ideological schisms at play in the Republican Party.

Thank you for being a Texas Election Source subscriber.
