The battle for the Texas House got expensive.

Candidates in competitive seats collectively raised $39.3M during the past month, much of through in-kind contributions from a handful of sources. Republicans, bolstered by huge spending by Texans for Lawsuit Reform ($7.0M) and Republican State Leadership Committee ($5.6M) PACs, have a $24.2M to $15.1M advantage over the Democrats. Gov. Greg Abbott’s (R) campaign added nearly $2M to bolster Republicans, many of whom also received a portion of the $2.5M in contributions from Associated Republicans of Texas PAC.
