Texas 2020 Elections

Analysis: Unlike the 2018 election in Texas, 2020’s top races won’t set spending records

Two years ago in Texas, interest and election turnout were juiced by a $125 million race for U.S. Senate. This year's ballot is topped by an extraordinary race for president, but the political spending at the top won't match 2018.

U.S Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Democratic U.S. Senate candidate MJ Hegar.
