In a lawsuit filed in January-and now stalled thanks to a tiff over the judge assigned to the case-Republicans argue the Dallas County Democratic Party chair properly authorized only a fraction of the party's 150 primary candidates. CNN's race rating of the Texas Senate race is Likely Republican. For the first time in a quarter of a century in Texas, there's a Democrat running for all 36 congressional seats. Or maybe even two.
