SD24: Texans for Lawsuit Reform PAC endorsed Sen. Dawn Buckingham (R-Lakeway) for re-election.

HD18/CD18: Houston resident Whitney Hatter established a state campaign committee for the district currently held by Rep. Ernest Bailes (R-Shepherd), but we already know she established a federal campaign committee to challenge U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Houston) as an independent. Jackson Lee represents CD18. Accordingly, she will be listed solely on our Federal Crib Sheet. Hatter is at least the third person this cycle to form a state campaign committee for a federal race.
