The 2014 primary election results are in the books. Turnout was down across the state, with some 546,000 Democrat and 1.5 million Republican votes cast, a 20% and 10% reduction respectively from 2010 numbers - not unusual in a mid-term election. As is usual, there were some expected outcomes, along with a few surprises. What follows is a high level recap of the results, which will be as devoid of editorial commentary as possible. For those of you wishing to look at more granular data, we are providing links to the Texas Secretary of State election results and the Texas Tribune brackets.
