The final leg of the Texas primary elections is now being run. The two top candidates in March primary contests, where no one received a majority of votes, are now going head-to-head for their partys' nominations.
The Star-Telegram Editorial Board has screened candidates for key races on the ballots in the Tarrant County area. We believe the following candidates deserve your vote:
Democratic Race for Governor — Recommend Andrew White
Democratic Race for Congressional District 6 — Recommend Ruby Faye Woolridge
Republican Race for Congressional District 6 — It's a close call. We give the edge to J.K. "Jake" Ellzey.
Republican Race for Tarrant County Tax Assessor-Collector — Wendy Burgess
Early voting for the May 22 runoff elections kicked off Monday, May 14, and will extend through May 18. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
