The candidates for lieutenant Governor are Dan Patrick, Leticia Van De Putte, Robert Butler, and Chandrakantha Courtney. In the Attorney General’s race, it’s Ken Paxton, Sam Houston, Jamie Balagia and Jamar Osborne. Glenn Hegar, Mike Collier, Ben Sanders and Deb Shafto are running for Comptroller of Public Accounts.
In the race for Commissioner of the General Land Office, it’s George P. Bush running against John Cook, Justin Knight and Valerie Alessi. Commissioner of Agriculture candidates are Sid Miller, Jim Hogan, David Palmquist, and Kenneth Kendrick.
Candidates in the race for Railroad Commissioner are Ryan Sitton, Steve Brown, Mark Miller and Martina Salinas.
The local races vary somewhat. For example, on the Precinct 1 ballot, voters will choose David Gray and Bryan Murff. Precinct 2 has John Gradberg and Lora Taylor. Precinct 3 lists Lora Taylor, and Precinct 4 has Dale LGrone, David Gray and Bryan Murff.
All ballots also have one constitutional amendment, Proposition One, which allows the transfer of state funds to be used for completion of transportation construction, maintenance, and rehabilitation projects, but doesn’t include toll road.
