Runoff election day in Texas today has six statewide races
In Texas, Democratic and Republican voters both have somebody to vote for in today's runoff election, which will finally decide the victors from the March primaries. Statewide races include the Republican ballot for Lieutenant Governor, attorney general, railroad commissioner and agriculture commissioner. On the Democratic ballot, races for agriculture commissioner and U.S. Senate.
The long primary election season that began late last year ends with today's runoffs, topped by four particularly noisy statewide Republican races, a couple more involving Democrats and about a dozen and a half legislative contests around Texas. The Republicans have been hogging the spotlight, with four hard-fought races on an uncharacteristically competitive primary ballot.
