Interactive Map: The 2012 General Election Races

All that's left is the general election. There are more than 240 races on the ballot for Texans to decide. Many of those races, however, are already decided, because redistricting made some districts unfavorable for one party or another. These maps for the Texas House, the state Senate and the U.S. House show which districts have candidates from both of the major parties (gray), only Democratic candidates (blue) or only Republican contestants (red).

The spreadsheets that follow list the races by type and district; the candidates for the Democrats, the Republicans, the Libertarians and the Greens; how Obama and Perry did in their 2008 and 2010 elections, respectively, by district; and the Texas Weekly Index for each district (the average percentage-point difference between Republican and Democratic candidates in contested statewide elections over the last two cycles; with red numbers for Republicans and blue ones for Democrats).

Included in the spreadsheets are sortable columns showing which races have incumbents, which have no Democrats, which have no Republicans, which are in swing districts (where Perry and Obama each got between 45 percent and 55 percent in their respective races), which were 12 percentage points either way off center according to their TWIs, and which are inhospitable — drawn so that a district's leanings are opposite those of its incumbent.
