Out of a total of 120 seats, Republicans are running in 64 of them without a Democratic opponent (so far)
Democrats have filed in some 17 seats with no Republican opponent (so far)
Out of a total of 50 seats, Republicans have filed for 31 of them with no Democratic opponent (so far)
Democrats have filed in only 3 seats with no Republican opponent (so far)
