No New Parties Expected to Qualify in Texas This Year

Texas has four ballot-qualified parties: Republican, Democratic, Libertarian, Green. This year it is not expected that any newly-qualifying parties will join them. The only party that had been thought to have the resources to surmount the difficult petition was the 1787 Party founded by Emily Mathews. However, the 1787 Party has decided not to try to petition this year in Texas or any other state, and instead to save its resources for getting on the ballot in all states in 2016.
