Early voting in the 2012 primary runoff elections began Monday and ends today, July 27. Election day will be Tuesday, July 31.
The big runoff races are for U. S. Senator, as both Republican and Democratic candidates seek to fill the vacancy left by U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. On the Republican ticket Ted Cruz faces Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst. The Democratic run-off is between Grady Yarborough and Paul Sadler. The winners from each respective party’s runoff will face each other in the November election.
Another important runoff in the Republican Party is between Eddie Zamora and Dale A. Brueggeman, who seek to be the party’s candidate to take on Democrat Congressman Ruben Hinojosa, District 15, in November.
