For those of you who follow more than just the Presidential campaign, here's a round-up of the statewide, Dallas and Tarrant County results of note:
U.S. Senate: Unsurprisingly, Cornyn rolled over his primary opponent, Texas secessionist Larry Kilgore. Rick Noreiga, Cornyn's only serious opposition, managed to win fifty-one percent of the vote in the Democratic Primary to avoid a runoff against perennial candidate Gene Kelly.
Railroad Commissioner: Mark Thompson garnered forty-eight percent of the vote, not enough to avoid a runoff against Dale Henry.
Supreme Court: Sam Houston won his primary against Baltasar Cruz for Place 7, and Linda Yanez defeated Susan Criss fifty-one to forty-nine percent for Place 8.
U.S. House District 10 (Greater Houston-Northern Austin): Larry Joe Doherty defeated Dan Grant handily and will go on to face current Republican incumbent Michael McCaul in November.
County Commissioner: Democratic Incumbent Roy Brooks defeated Cora Mosley in the Precinct No. 1.
17th Judicial District: Randy Turner faced no opposition in the Democratic primary, and the four opponents in the Republican primary split the vote forcing a runoff between Melody Wilkinson, who gathered thirty-six percent of the vote and Mike Hrabal who managed only twenty-three percent (Republican incumbent Fred Davis is retiring.)
213th Judicial District: Republican Louis Sturns will face a run-off against Lisa Callaghan, as he garnered only thirty-three percent of the vote. There are no Democrats running for the 213th.
Sheriff: Democratic Incumbent Lupe Valdez dispatched her three primary opponents. On the Republican side, former Sheriff Jim Bowles will face a runoff against Lowell Cannaday.
