Sid Miller, who is seeking a second term as Texas Agriculture Commissioner, fought off two challengers in the March Republican primary. Miller won with approximately 56% of the vote, fending off Jim Hogan, who ran against Miller in 2014 as a Democrat, as well as conservative lobbyist Trey Blocker. Miller is being challenged in November by Kim Olson, a retired U.S. Air Force colonel.
