The political climate in Texas is becoming increasingly heated as the state gears up for a busy primary season. With more than a dozen vacant seats, the elections for the Texas House of Representatives and Senate have attracted the most attention this year. Candidates and incumbents are vying for votes in the hope of outshining their opponents. One of the most competitive senate primaries of this cycle is in Conroe, Texas, where incumbent Republican Fallon has the support of more than two dozen Republican members of the Texas House of Representatives.
The Dallas Morning News editorial board endorsed Villalba for a fourth term, citing his opposition to the Texas Senate's “bathroom bill” as one of their reasons. Patterson's backing from conservative groups such as Young Conservatives of Texas and Empower Texans may come as a surprise, since both candidates have garnered their share of local support and are not far apart when it comes to fundraising. He was also the only Democrat to receive an A+ rating from the Texas State Fusiliers Association. Patricia Harless, who previously held the seat, has the support of the Texas Associate Republicans and the political branch of the Texas Business Association.

Seliger, former mayor of Amarillo, was the only Republican in the Senate who did not formally endorse the lieutenant. Paul Workman, Republican from Austin, is the only Republican who represents a part of Travis County Liberal Party in the Texas House of Representatives, and Democrats see this as an opportunity to flip the district.
