Democrat 'Blue Wave' Fails to Crest in Texas

Democratic turnout for Texas' primary has exceeded primary midterm vote totals not seen since 1994, but despite the big numbers at the polls, they still were easily outpaced by republican voters.

More than 1,036,950 voters cast ballots for the U.S. Senate race in Tuesday's Democratic primary, the party's highest midterm primary election total in at least 24 years.

Republicans also set a new non-presidential year primary turnout record, exceeding 1.5 million votes Tuesday.

Democrats haven't won a statewide office in Texas since 1994 and Republicans remain favored to hold all Texas statewide offices in November.

Democratic primary voters said they were energized by frustrations with President Donald Trump, but that anger has failed to translate into any real threat for the Texas GOP.
