The Texas attorney general election will take place on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Greg Abbott (R) was first elected in 2002 and is eligible to run for re-election. However, he is running for governor instead.[1]

Texas is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Voters do not have to register with a party. At the primary, they may choose which party primary ballot to vote on, but in order to vote they must sign a pledge declaring they will not vote in another party's primary or convention that year.[2][3]

Candidates

Note: The following list of candidates is not official and will continue to be updated until the 2014 candidate filing deadline. Candidates will be added as we come across them prior to the deadline.
