Hey, it could happen: The Green presidential nominee, or Railroad Commission candidate Martina Salinas, could poll 5% statewide in Texas in the general election. That 5% in a statewide race would guarantee the Greens a ballot line in 2018. In the past, the Greens have benefited from the lack of a Democrat in at least one statewide race; however, the Democrats have all those bases covered in 2016.
Meanwhile, the Democratic Party could find nobody to run against Pete Sessions in northeastern Dallas County's Congressional District 32. (The district also contains a portion of south-central Collin County.) There are, however, candidates from the Libertarian and Green Parties.
Gary Stuard is the first Green to run in TX-32 since Carla Hubbell ran in 2002, the very first race for that seat. The district was one of three created following the 2000 census. Sessions won the new seat with 67.77% of the vote, and he has occupied it ever since.
If you're in the Dallas area Sunday afternoon, 10 July, you can attend a meeting to find out more about Stuard and his campaign strategies. This is from the Facebook event page:
