Now that redistricting maps are set — sort of — candidates are signing up to run. Candidates have until December 15 to throw their hats in the ring.

In Williamson County, State Rep. Larry Gonzalez, R-Round Rock, filed for reelection in House District 52. Cedar Park City Council member Tony Dale filed to run in newly drawn House District 106. He originally had his eye on HD 149.

State Sen. Wendy Davis, D-Fort Worth, filed to run for re-election in Senate District 10. The original maps made that district hard for Davis to win, but now her office wrote in a press release that she expects to win. Davis caused a headache for Republicans on the final day of the legislative session when she spoke for over an hour. The speech caused a filibuster of Senate Bill 1811, a critical part of the state budget regarding school finance.

Some Republicans have said they will not run again after seeing the new state House and Senate maps released by federal judges last week.
