Apparently, it seems that a lot less Democrats have gone to vote in the Texas Primary elections today. The current results show a lot more votes cast in the Republican Gubernatorial Primary, when compared to the number of votes cast in the Democrat Gubernatorial Primary.

Furthermore, with 28% of the votes in as of 8:33PM March 1st, Abott is leading with 67.9% of the total votes cast in the Republican Gubernatorial Primary. 67.9% of the votes are currently for about as of 8:33PM. Abott is facing 7 other candidates, currently Huffines is at 13% and West is at 11.2%.

Here is a current snapshot from CNN.

On an interesting note is the Attorney General race, which has a chance of going into a runoff. The current incumbent Paxton will either have to face-off Guzman or Bush in May. The race between Guzman and Bush to be into the runoff is tight.

Wow, 68% of the vote going for Abbott?? It’s almost as if incumbents have some sort of advantage when it comes to reelection. /s
Texas Republicans don't mind freezing to death because of the neglected electrical grid.

Says more about them vs Abbott

The real surprise here is that Paxton did as well as he did.
I can't even imagine why people would vote for someone that is under indictment for fraud and abuse of power when his own hand picked deputy AG's turned him in.

Doesn't matter "we get to own the libs and freeze to death in the winter"
But..but..this is the primaries. Everyone they were voting for was Republican? Are they intentionally voting for the worst possible candidate? If so, why didn't Huffines win?
