Both parties are looking for any indicators suggesting which party might control Congress come November. Ted Cruz, is the statewide headliner for Democrats this cycle.

Tradition dictates, though, that party organizations generally stay out of picking candidates in primaries, but Moser's profile has the DCCC anxious that it will blow a chance to win a congressional seat from Republican John Culberson. Election results are trickling in, after the polls closed at 8 p.m. EST, or 7 p.m. local time. "So I don't see [Trump] as a being a significant factor in these Republican primary races".

This infighting among Democrats in competitive races is what very well could derail their 2018 plans.

"Having Democratic turnout surpass Republicans is a big deal in Texas, and should have the GOP scared", Cal Jillson, a professor of political science at Southern Methodist University, told Fox News Tuesday. Two former state lawmakers — Stacey Abrams and Stacey Evans — aren't that far apart ideologically, but they have obviously different campaign approaches that reflects the national party's internal debate over identity and strategy. "Neither would've happened without being made an issue in this campaign". Democrats have 25 contested congressional primaries, and Senate nominee Beto O'Rourke raised $2.4 million in the final three months of 2017, more than Cruz's $1.9 million haul. Watch the Facebook Live feed on WFAA's Facebook page.

Incumbent Railroad Commissioner Christi Craddick handily defeated challenger Weston Martinez in the Republican Primary with more than 75 percent of the vote.

According to the Texas Secretary of State, 465,235 Democrats voted early in the 15 counties, compared to 420,329 Republicans.

National eyes were on Republican Rep. John Culberson's 7th District in the Houston area, and specifically Laura Moser - the candidate the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee attacked as incapable of winning a general election over comments in articles the journalist and activist had written while living in Washington. Though the Democratic frontrunners will square off in a May runoff, both face long odds of beating Abbott and the $41 million campaign war chest he has amassed.

It's only the third time since realignment that fewer than 10 games has separated the 1 and 9 seeds. Nelson suggests going online to purchase parking so fans can plan how they will get to the arena.

There is at least one Democratic candidate in every congressional district - 36 of them - for the first time since 1992. Neither White nor Valdez may win a majority of Tuesday's votes, though.

Valdez is an openly gay Latina and spent the last week in The Rio Grande Valley last week, where she's hoping for a strong Hispanic turnout.

More importantly, this means that 363 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives favor one political party and the battle occurs in the primary, not the general election.

A former U.S. Department of Agriculture official will join a former professional football player in the May runoff to face U.S. Rep. Pete Sessions. Barton won't seek re-election after a nude photo of the 68-year-old congressman circulated online. Considering that, the fact that over a third of Democratic voters opted for relative unknowns rather than backing him seems a bit disappointing. CNN recently moved the Texas Senate race from Solid Republican to Likely Republican. Gov. Greg Abbott (R) tried to stir up outrage over this, even though Soros was spending in a Democratic primary for a Democrat-held office. Bonier's firm provided data to the Democratic National Committee in the 2016 election.

Dan Patrick wins GOP primary for Texas Lieutenant Governor. Democrats need to flip 24 seats to win control of the House.

Because again, piece after piece coming from Austin-based sources have promised coastal media compadres that Texas has purple potential and Democrat challenger Rep. Beto O'Rourke can pull off an upset!

In an unexpected move, Cruz chose to attack O'Rourke by name before the polls had even closed.
