The Congressman made the decision after the filing closed and will be on the March 2018 primary ballot. The Republican Party has filed suit Civil Case No. 1:17-cv-01167 in Federal Court (Austin) to get his name removed from the ballot. The Democratic Party is also suing Civil Case No. 1:17-cv-01186 but apparently dropped their case after the court decided that Congressman Farenthold would not be on the ballot.

On 24 April 2018, Governor Greg Abbott (Republican) scheduled a 30 June Special Election to fill the remainder of former Congressman Farenthold's term which ends in January 2019. The filing deadline is Friday 27 April. All candidates, regardless of party affiliation, run on the 30 June ballot. If no one receives a majority of the vote, the top two vote-getters compete in a September runoff.

Notes

Candidates for office appear on this page in italics where 'The Green Papers' does not yet have independent confirmation from a legal election authority that the person has been officially certified to appear on the ballot.


"FEC" indicates the Federal Election Commission (FEC) Campaign Finance Summary.

When available, we post each candidate's FEC identification number, the date of their most recently filed Report of Receipts and Disbursements, their "Tot" [Total Receipts (contributions received or what came in: FEC Form 3, Line 16, Column B)] and their "Dsb" [Total Disbursements (expenditures or what was spent: FEC Form 3, Line 23, Column B)]. A link is provided to the Federal Election Commission's Summary Report for those who might wish to explore the details.

If a candidate raises or spends $5,000 or less, he or she is not subject to FEC reporting requirements.
