The offices up for election in 2016 include the U.S. President, all 36 U.S. Representatives from Texas, one Texas railroad commissioner, three members of the Texas Supreme Court, 16 state senators and all 150 state representatives.
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio will also be looking to exceed expectations in Texas and Ohio Gov. John Kasich still has hope of becoming the Republican candidate that the party establishment rallies around. Running a strong third in Texas would give him a big boost, but there are questions about his electoral strength in the southern states.

But the Democratic race has also been full of surprises this year and Sanders claimed a symbolic victory here by narrowing the gap between himself and the former secretary of state.
The unpredictable presidential election has also helped to generate lots of interest in several heated local races.
