More Texas SBOE Candidate Filings

by

We’ve seen a flurry of additional candidate filings for Texas State Board of Education races over the last few days. We don’t yet have announcements or campaign websites for all of these candidates, but we wanted to list their names here. We have included other candidates who filed earlier but for whom we also don’t yet have formal announcements. You can find posts about those other SBOE candidates here.

TFN’s SBOE election watch page includes a full listing of candidates who have filed, including (when available) links to their campaign websites: tfn.org/SBOE2012. (If you have information about a candidate’s announcement and/or campaign website, please click here to let us know.)
