Democratic Voters Turn Out In Surprising Numbers For Texas Primary

Democratic voter turnout was at a surprising high for Texas' midterm primary Tuesday. 

NBC News reports that back in 2014, five Republicans voted for every one Democrat in the gubernatorial primary. But Democrats are closing that gap. Tuesday's primary reportedly got two Democrats for every three Republican voters. 

Here's another takeaway from the Texas primary: The state will most likely get its first two Latinas in Congress after Veronica Escobar and Sylvia Garcia both clinched their primary elections. 

Illinois will be the next state to have a primary on March 20.
