During the last two midterm cycles, 2014 and 2010, Democrats trailed Republicans by more than 120,000 early primary votes in those counties. Will Hurd's expansive border district that runs from San Antonio to El Paso, all voted for Hillary Clinton over Trump in 2016.

The top issues mentioned by Republican candidates in 2016 were taxes, Obamacare, immigration, debt, and the Second Amendment while the top issues for Democratic candidates were Obamacare, Social Security, education, the minimum wage, and climate change.

"Three percent, that could make a difference in some smaller races, but in a statewide election I don't think that's enough to sway anything", Mr. Ryan said. Ted Cruz is "absolutely" anxious about Democrats taking over the southern state in the upcoming midterm elections.

A close Republican primary race Tuesday could be for land commissioner, where George P. Bush was the first member of his family to win his first election four years ago but drew an unlikely challenger in Jerry Patterson, a former Bush supporter who preceded him as land commissioner.

Democratic voters in Texas are turning up in droves to cast their ballots in the party primary. Throughout that period, the surge has favored the Democrats.

While Democrats are hopeful about voter turnout, the numbers released by the Texas secretary of state only show votes for the state's largest fifteen counties - there are 254 counties total. Those are encouraging signs, he said, for the way the state is trending politically.

Ryan also acknowledged that the rise in Democratic enthusiasm is worrisome for Republicans - especially because Democrats have gotten many low propensity voters to the polls.

Democrats are touting a record number of women and minority candidates running for election this year. Between now and the end of September, a few thousand candidates will compete to represent their party in November's general election-and their success or failure will reveal how the country feels about President Trump as well as a host of other issues.
