According to Politico, Johnson's primary competition was serious. Both Caraway and Clayton were legitimate threats to the 10-term Johnson, and Clayton raised significant funds and created a compelling ad. Additionally, national Super PAC Campaign for Primary Accountability launched an ad campaign against the incumbent. For her part, Johnson emphasized her endorsement from Barack Obama, important in a majority-black district.
Incumbent Eddie Bernice Johnson was targeted by the Super PAC Campaign for Primary Accountability. The Houston Chronicle reports that the PAC targeted Johnson because she was a long-standing incumbent, her constituents were dissatisfied, and there was a capable challenger. The PAC's efforts benefited Caraway and fellow primary challenger Taj Clayton.
Mallory-Caraway won re-election in District 110. She was unopposed in the March 2 Democratic primary and faced no opposition in the November 2 general election.
