It feels like just yesterday there was the last presidential election two years ago, but we're already onto the midterms -- with a lot of big implications for Texans.

While neither Senate seat in Texas is up for grabs this November, every U.S. representative's seat will be. Along with that, nearly every executive office position in Texas will be on the ballot -- the most-watched easily being the gubernatorial race between Gov.
