2010 Election results for prosecutors
Thanks to the miracle of the Interwebs, we at TDCAA are able to track the results of many local elections. Unfortunately, election results from some parts of the state are still less--how should I put it?--"accessible" than we would like. Therefore, we rely on our members to help us fill in the gaps.

This is where you come in. Below is a list of results from various contested Criminal DA races throughout the state, or new CDAs taking office in January for various reasons. (With one exception [Nueces], only Criminal DAs are up for re-election this cycle; CAs and DAs run in presidential years.) If there is a result of a contested election that you know to not be listed here, please add a post about it (or email me) so that we can catch up with the latest news. Also, if a CDA seat is changing hands for other reasons (retirement, etc.) or was decided in the primary, feel free to add it as well.

Thanks! Oh, and one last note: This is for informational purposes only, so please reserve any comments you may have for other, more partisan websites.

THE LIST (UPDATED as of 11/3 at 4:45pm, with incumbents marked by *):

Bexar: Susan Reed*
Collin: Greg Willis
Comal: Jennifer Tharp
Dallas: Craig Watkins*
Denton: Paul Johnson*
Galveston: Jack Roady
Harrison: Coke Solomon
Kaufman: Michael McLelland
McLennan: Abel Reyna
Nueces: Mark Skurka
San Jacinto: Richard Countiss
Smith: Matt Bingham*
Van Zandt: Chris Martin
Victoria: Steven Tyler*
Wichita: Maureen Shelton
Yoakum: Bill Helwig
