AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The four Republican incumbents on the Texas Supreme Court have won their party’s nomination to run for re-election.

Four places on the state’s highest civil court are up for election this year, and on Tuesday Republican voters rejected all the challengers.

Nathan Hecht will run again for chief justice, while Jeff Brown and Phil Johnson beat their challengers for the GOP nomination. Jeffrey Boyd was not challenged in his race.

None of the Democratic candidates faced competition for their party’s nomination. Bill Moody, Larry Meyers and Gina Benavides moved on to the general election in November.

The Supreme Court in Texas only handles civil matters, but is considered the state’s highest court. The Court of Criminal Appeals is the highest court for criminal cases.
