That is the number of candidates who applied for the vacant seat of the late U.S. Sen. Craig Thomas by the 5 p.m. Thursday deadline.
The roster includes four women and 27 men; nine former legislators; three State Republican Central Committee members; two doctors; nine attorneys; and seven ranchers.
