What else?

In addition to the primary for the presidential race in November, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is up for re-election.

At the state level, some of the competitive primary races, which affect Brazoria County, include:
  • Texas House districts 24 and 29
  • Texas Railroad commissioner
  • Several Court races, including Texas Supreme Court places 2, 4 and 6
At the county level, two Republicans will compete to represent the party in November for Brazoria County sheriff. Those include incumbent Bo Stallman and challenger Richard Foreman.

The Brazoria County Precinct 1 commissioner's race has four Republicans on the ballot, while Brazoria County constable races for precincts 1 and 4 also have competitive Republican primaries.

The winners of the March 5 primary will advance to the general election in November.

However, races that have more than two candidates have the potential for a runoff, as a candidate competing in the primaries will need a majority of support before they can be declared the winner, Texas Secretary of State spokesperson Alicia Pierce said.

Results on election night will not be made official until canvassed.
