40 THE TEXAS ALMANAC.
TEXAS POLITICAL MATTERS.
All political parties of national standing are represented by State organiza-
tions in Texas. Although overwhelmingly Democratic in political matters,
political policies and issues are freely discussed from stump and through the
press as occasion seems to require. Men of recognized merit and of high
standing are found in all parties, and Texas is as free from political prejudice
in business and social life as any State in the Union. Under the present law
only the Democratic party holds nomination primaries, other parties holding
conventions. Being the dominant party, a Democratic nomination practically
insures an election, and for that reason the political contests occur almost exclu-
sively within the ranks of the Democratic party previous to the general election.
PARTY EXECUTIVE COMMITTEES
The Democratic and Republican
State Executive Committees are com-
posed of one member selected from
each State Senatorial District, thus
making thirty-one members in each
committee, besides officers. Executive
Committees of other parties vary in
number of members, being selected
according to individual party methods.
