8:25 p.m. – Democrat Watch Party at AAC
Report from Aida Ahmed

Although originally planned for the plaza at Victory Park, the Dallas Democratic watch party has been moved inside to the Jack Daniel’s Club inside American Airlines Center. Crowds are slowly starting to file in despite the change of plans due to weather.

People are keeping a close eye on the flat screen TVs tuned to CNN and local Dallas channels. All the major Dallas media outlets have set up shop for the night and are also waiting to see how the local races turn out.

Few candidates are in the house tonight though more reportedly are en route to the watch party. Democratic politicians in attendance include Texas House Representative Helen Giddings, District 109. Dallas County Treasurer Joe Wells is also in attendance as he seeks re-election this year.

Stay tuned for updates on how Democrats are faring in Dallas as well as state-wide.
