Election Brackets and Political Climates

Consider this your quick reference kit. As we update the candidate listings, they'll be included in our brackets on The Texas Tribune website, here. They are a mess — a mix of the filings under court maps in December and the filings under the new interim maps approved in February. But the deadlines are upon the parties to produce clean lists. Candidates have until the close of business Friday to file. The parties have until the close of business on Monday to hand statewide lists to the Texas Secretary of State. Those lists will include candidates who filed with the state party as well as those in bigger counties who got to file at home.

We're also including the newly calculated Texas Weekly Index for each House, Senate and congressional district. They're displayed below; you can download a printable version here
