Early voting turnout for Republicans also increased, growing from 16,293 voters in 2014 to 20,134 voters in 2018.
The Houston Chronicle noted that in Harris County, the most populous county and where Houston is located, "Democrats outpaced the GOP by more than 2,000 voters". In those counties, Democrats made up less than 40 percent of the early vote in 2014 but comprised about 52 percent of the early vote in 2018.
The time has come, and Texas is officially kicking off the midterm election season by holding the first primary races in the nation on Tuesday.
Democrats also hope to flip three other Republican congressional districts, but those races may need runoffs to decide who the party's nominee will be.

As the Trump administration suffers from the political equivalent of a nervous breakdown and an natural disaster election is approaching in November, it is appropriate to consider the Democratic stars who are emerging to take the limelight in what will be known as "post-Trump America", which may begin sooner than pundits think. "I don't think it's going to have any effect on our outcome". The Koch Brothers alone have pledged to spend a whopping $400 million electing Republicans this year, 60 percent more than they spent in the 2016 presidential election.
The high number of free-for-all races was prompted by the decisions of eight men in the Texas Congressional delegation - six Republicans and two Democrats - who opted to not run for re-election. This race will appear on the Republican Ballot. "If you want your voice to be heard, you have to be prepared", Secretary Pablos said.
In TX-07, Latinos comprise more than 30 percent and blacks make up about 13 percent, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. With so many candidates, plenty of controversy, and just enough campaign dollars in the mix, it's hard to tell how this will turn out, but one of these people will be up against Culberson in the fall, so this won't be the last time focus is locked on this district this year.

In fundraising email last week, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott warned supporters, "We've seen a surge of liberal enthusiasm in deep red states like Georgia, Alabama and Oklahoma". "There is no question the Democrats are turning out in higher rates whether it's early or on election day".
