Polls have closed in Texas, where we have our last state legislative special election of the cycle. As usual, our faithful correspondent Johnny Longtorso has the goods:

Texas SD-19: This is a runoff for an open Democratic seat stretching out west from San Antonio. Carlos Uresti resigned following a bribery conviction. The candidates are former Rep. Pete Gallego on the Democratic side, and retired game warden Pete Flores on the Republican side.

This seat went 54-42 for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and 55-44 for Barack Obama in 2012, and in the first round of this special election, Democratic candidates combined to win 59 percent of the vote, while Republican candidates won a total of 40 percent.

Feel free to use this open thread to track the returns.
