As returns rolled in Tuesday night for Texas’s 2018 party primaries, dozens of campaigns came to an end, including — to no one's surprise — those of the two Republicans challenging Gov. Greg Abbott.

With more than 90 percent of the vote, the governor easily claimed his spot on the general election ballot.
