AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Texans running for state offices are competing mostly in vain for voter attention in tomorrow's primaries.
That's as the stemwinder presidential primary race continues to command center stage.
Democrats and Republicans are on the air and on the stump as they seek nominations for U.S. Senate, Congress, the state Legislature, the state's highest appellate courts, the State Board
of Education and a host of local offices in the state's 254 counties.
The most prominent statewide office on the ballot is U.S. Senate. There, four Democrats are competing for the chance to take on Republican Senator John Cornyn. The incumbent faces minimal opposition in the GOP primary from consultant Larry Kilgore and already has seven million dollars for the fall campaign.
