Texas Republicans dominated in a key Texas state House race on Tuesday against a leftist candidate backed by failed Senate and failed presidential candidate Robert Francis O’Rourke.
“The victory by Republican Gary Gates, who put more than $1.5 million of his own money into his run for state House District 28, is sure to bring a sigh of relief for the GOP in a race that was being tracked far beyond Texas. By the final weeks, the race had escalated into the first big special election of 2020,” The Associated Press reported. “In final unofficial results, Gates polled 58% of the vote to 42% for Democrat Eliz Markowitz.”
