Election Contests and Ballot Measures

March 4, 2008 Republican Party Primary Election

Texas

Note: Candidate pictures are the most current we have on file. Because this is a past election, they may not show a candidate’s likeness at the time of the election. Likewise, some of the links to websites, emails, and social media may be broken.

The Republican Presidential candidates still in the race at this time include John McCain, Mike Huckabee, and Ron Paul. Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani, Duncan Hunter, Tom Tancredo, and Fred Thompson have withdrawn from the race, but will still appear on ballots. Alan Keyes and Hugh Cort also appearing on ballots are not running in most States. To better compare the views of only the Presidential candidates who are still in the race, use the "National Democratic Pres. Primary Ballot" or "National Republican Pres. Primary Ballot" links in the navigation bar above.

Also, we are currently engaged in adding the judicial contests and will make them available as soon as possible.
