Texas has complete Republican control on all statewide offices and this is one of the races where Democrats are hoping to change this situation.

Republican Incumbent

Incumbent Republican Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst faces no primary challengers and so he will face his only test after Democrats have chosen from three candidates. Dewhurst was first elected in 2002 and is an oft-mentioned candidate for Senate in 2012. When he is not in Austin, he lives with his wife and daughter in Houston.

Democratic Challengers

Linda Chavez-Thompson decisively won the Democratic primary and hopes to spring from that success into a victory in November. Currently a national Vice Chair for the Democratic Party, she also served as a Vice President for the AFL-CIO union, the first Hispanic to serve in such a high position in the union. A longtime advocate for workers in all forms of employment, Thompson grew up in Lorenzo, Texas. To learn more about her campaign, click here.
