Elections for 15 of the 31 seats in the Texas State Senate will take place in 2014. A primary election took place on March 4, 2014. The general election will be held on November 4, 2014. The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in these elections was December 9, 2013. Donald Huffines defeated incumbent John Carona in the Republican primary. Huffines will face Mike Dooling (L) in the general election.[1][2][3]

Prior to the March 4 primary, Huffines said Carona was too liberal and described the 18-year incumbent as out-of-touch in the district.[4] After Huffines declared for the seat, Carona said: "I’m surprised Mr. Huffines is running as a Republican considering that he spent a small fortune attacking Republicans in the 2012 presidential campaign, but I welcome a thorough debate on the issues facing Texans."[5] In 2012, Huffines helped form a SuperPAC that supported Ron Paul and spent more than $400,000 in the race.[4] Texas Monthly named Carona one of the worst legislators in 2013, pointing in part to his long absence during the session.[6]
