Therapist Mark Thompson has won the nomination for Texas Railroad Commission. He defeated retired petroleum engineer Dale Henry in the only statewide runoff on the Democratic side.

The winner of today's race will face incumbent Republican Michael Williams in November.

A trickle of voters cast ballots today. By contrast, a record 4.25 million Texans voted in the March 4 party primaries.
