Today is Election Day in runoffs for local, state and national offices.
Three local races include a fight for the District 59 seat on the Texas House of Representatives, the Coryell County commissioner Precinct 3 seat, and the 426th District judgeship. Also on ballots are a Democratic contest for state Railroad Commission and Democratic contests for two federal races, U.S. Senate and U.S. District 31. The winners in those three contests move on to the November election.
The District 59 race is between incumbent Texas Rep. J.D. Sheffield, R-Gatesville, and fellow Republican Shelby Slawson.
The Coryell County commissioner race is between Republicans Ryan Basham and Justin Veazey.
The primary runoff for the U.S. Senate election is between Royce West of Dallas and M.J. Hegar of Round Rock. The two Democrats are competing to face off against incumbent John Cornyn in November.
Also, there are two Democrats vying for the chance to go up against John Carter for the 31st Congressional District.
Dr. Christine Eady Mann and Donna Imam are looking for the opportunity to take the seat from the nine-time incumbent Republican, Rep. John Carter of Round Rock.
In a state race, Democrats can decide between former state Rep. Robert R. “Beto” Alonzo and oil and gas attorney Chrysta Castaneda for their party’s nomination for Texas Railroad commissioner. The winner will face Republican Jim Wright.
