Montgomery County, March 9 – The November 3, 2020, General Election will, of course, provide the final answers to the pending electoral contests. With the results of the Republican Primary Election and the Democratic Primary Election, there is a bit more clarity about the identity of the individuals who will be the respective party nominees in each race.
President: President Donald Trump, the Republican, will likely face Democratic former Vice President Joseph Biden. While United States Senator Bernie Sanders (D-Vermont) remains in the contest for the Democratic Nomination, the math just doesn’t seem to work for Sanders in the race for delegates.
United States Senator: United States Senator John Cornyn, a Republican, will face either Royce West or Mary “MJ” Hegar, who will face each other in the May 26, 2020, Democratic Runoff Election.
United States Representative, District 8: Incumbent Republican United States Congressman Kevin Brady will oppose Democrat Elizabeth Hernandez.
