Election Brackets and Political Climates
Consider this your quick reference kit.
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.
Texas Tribune donors or members may be quoted or mentioned in our stories, or may be the subject of them. For a complete list of contributors, click here.

Quality journalism doesn't come free
Perhaps it goes without saying — but producing quality journalism isn't cheap. At a time when newsroom resources and revenue across the country are declining, The Texas Tribune remains committed to sustaining our mission: creating a more engaged and informed Texas with every story we cover, every event we convene and every newsletter we send. As a nonprofit newsroom, we rely on members to help keep our stories free and our events open to the public. Do you value our journalism? Show us with your support.Yes, I'll donate today
