The last campaign finance reports to be filed by Texas state-level candidates before Election Tuesday were due October 26 to the Texas Ethics Commission. With that latest update, all available pre-election campaign finance data for the 2020 election cycle is now included in Transparency USA’s Texas database.
And these numbers may tell only part of the story. The totals don’t include any political donations these men and women have given to candidates in federal races, such as the O’Rourke vs. Cruz battle. Moreover, these numbers don’t reflect any donations given to 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(4) organizations. Courts have ruled that these groups do not have to divulge their donors in order to protect the donors’ rights to freedom of speech and freedom of assembly.
