Texas Congressional Republican and Democratic Primary Results

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Polls are officially closed in the 2012 primary elections! (Praise the Lord!)

Below, we'll be tracking results in key Congressional primaries on the Democratic and Republican sides of the aisle. Many races will be determined in tonight's primary given the gerrymandered nature of our districts. However, some of our more crowded primaries will go to a run-off; the only question is which candidates will be in them.

Expect the early and mail-in voting after 7:15 pm Central, and election day results as they come in throughout the night. Special thanks to staff writers Emily Cadik, Joe Deshotel, Nick Hudson, and Chaille Jolink for helping track these numbers!  

Full results available from the Secretary of State.

  1. Kesha Rogers again? Ugh!
    This table hasn't been updated in awhile, but on the Secretary of State site, Lyndon LaRouche follower Kesha Rogers has pulled ahead in the CD 22 primary.  Not again!

    I'm very impressed with Ciro Rodriguez possibly avoiding a runoff after being outspent.  If Pete Gallego was such a superior campaigner and significantly more popular (which seemed to be most of the reason for BOR's endorsement), that wouldn't be happening.

    • E-day beats early vote
      Rogers was behind by 350 early votes (11%) but made it up today. Guess the crazies were motivated to turn out. 🙁

      Meanwhile, the CD35 total numbers aren't right (early vote is fine). The state site has Doggett winning with 68.5% of the vote. The totals as of 11:15 are:  

      Doggett 11,266

      Romo     4,039

      Alvarado 1,005

  2. Slow learners
    It is beyond me, why you folks think you can sell a policy of continued bank bailouts, illegal wars, “indefinite detention,” “targeted assassinations,” and savage austerity to a population that is impoverished and feels betrayed. I'm surprised that Kesha Rogers didn't get a lot more votes.
