McDonald resigns as Judge, will announce candidacy for another office Friday.

Now that Texas finally has State House, Senate and U.S. Congressional maps, candidates in those newly drawn districts have started making their intentions known.

Today Bastrop County Judge Ronnie McDonald announced he was resigning to run either for a U.S. or State House seat (he'll let us know which on Friday).

On Friday, the first day candidates could file under the new maps, Cedar Park City Councilman Tony Dale announced he'd run in a Williamson County district that includes Cedar Park and Leander.

The deadline to file is this Friday, March 9th. Here are links to up to date lists from the two major parties:

Democrats

Republicans
