Former President Trump is leading in Texas presidential campaign contributions from large donors, Federal Election Commission data shows.

Why it matters: Campaign contributions offer a general sense of a candidate's financial position heading into today's primary.

Caveat: This accounting excludes small donors.

By the numbers: Trump's campaign has raised nearly $8 million in Texas from large donors, with another GOP presidential candidate, Nikki Haley, trailing at $5 million.

  • President Biden's campaign raised $3 million from large donors in Texas.

What's next: Bexar County voters can cast a ballot at any polling location from 7am to 7pm.

The bottom line: Trump and Biden are expected to easily win their primary races.
