Elected Governor

Dolph Briscoe

The 1974 Texas gubernatorial election was held on November 5, 1974, to elect the Governor of Texas. Incumbent Democratic Governor Dolph Briscoe was easily re-elected to a second term, winning 61% of the vote to Republican Jim Granberry's 31%. Raza Unida candidate Ramsey Muniz won 6%, while the remaining 2% were cast for other candidates.[1]

Briscoe was sworn in for his second term on January 21, 1975. As the Constitution of Texas had been amended in 1972 to extend the governor's term from 2 years to 4 years, Briscoe became the first governor to be sworn in for a four-year term since Edmund J. Davis.

Briscoe carried 249 out of 254 counties in his landslide reelection victory.
