Ballot time! It's primary election day in Texas

Texas primary results — live updates

The one where a longtime Republican state legislator is apparently now not Republican enough: State Rep. Sarah Davis is a moderate Republican of the fiscally conservative, socially liberal variety, and her constituents in and around the West University area that comprises State District 134 have elected her to the state legislature four times already, which implies that they like the job she has done. A recent CNN analysis revealed US Senate challenger Beto O'Rourke, a Democrat, has a better chance than anticipated at unseating Ted Cruz.

O'Rourke is one of the strongest Democratic candidates to run for statewide office in Texas since my former boss and mentor Lloyd Bentsen served brilliantly in the Senate and as secretary of the Treasury.

For the first time in more than 25 years, Democrats were contesting each of Texas' 36 USA congressional districts, the party said.

Voters will be required to produce identification to cast their ballots. Just over 15,000 Democrats voted early this primary season compared to only about 4,000 in 2014.

Readers with internet access who want to see which candidates won, which got sent to runoffs in May and what the vote count was for candidates in key races can look at the Bulletin's website, www. "That's a good thing for November". Now he's a central figure in midterm primaries. One candidate used the existing border fence as the backdrop of a late-January ad in which he declared he was running for Congress to stop the president from "destroying the American dream".

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is coming under fire from its own party member after attacking a fellow Democrat congressional candidate in Texas. Aims tough (Wall, wielding a rifle). "Great hair (Trump). Greater hair (Wall)".

NBC News also suggested four seats in US congressional races in Texas are up for grabs including District 32 in North Dallas, now held by Rep. Pete Sessions.

Democratic early voting across Texas' most-populous counties was more than double that of the last non-presidential cycle in 2014.

Race Overview: Seven Democrats; Republican incumbent Rep. Pete Sessions has held the seat since 2003. Moser, who has the backing of Our Revolution, Sen.

Wenger calls for composure following City battering
"We needed at least to come in level at half-time but City took advantage of our lack of confidence". "We were clinical. We try our best in every game. "We don't think too much", replied Pep Guardiola when the scenario was put to him.

Moser, a political activist and former journalist, is married to Arun Chaudhary, the creative director of the Bernie Sanders 2016 campaign for presidency.

The DCCC's maneuvers - the very embodiment of "the establishment" that many voters hate - may have had the opposite of the intended effect and could end up propelling Moser into the May runoff.

MA also could send its first Latina to Congress in the race to replace Rep. Nicki Tsongas, a Democrat in the state's Congressional District 3 race.

Democrats need to flip 24 GOP-seats to reclaim a majority in the U.S. House.

The crowded field means that a runoff is likely unavoidable. Will Hurd in the 23rd House District between Iraq War veteran Gina Ortiz Jones, former federal prosecutor Jay Hulings and former Agriculture Department official Judy Canales.

And even though the Republicans numbers were also up from the midterm primaries four years ago, they still lagged the Democrats in the urban counties, and Democrats appeared to be closing the gap in the GOP-friendly large suburban counties. The senator also is using his stature with endorsements in several of the 21 contested Republican House primaries. "He's the subcommittee chair here that controls the money that flows to the Department of Justice".

Eighteen Republicans are pursuing the opportunity to replace him as Republican nominee for the post when it comes up for election in November. Paddie is seeking his fourth term in the house.

In other statewide offices, Abbott and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick face only token opposition and are expected to cruise to the GOP nomination. Even Attorney General Ken Paxton, who has been indicted on felony securities fraud charges, remains favored for re-election.
