Former U.S. Health & Human Services Dept. official Brian Harrison turned away former Rep. John Wray’s (R-Waxahachie) comeback bid, while former Rep. John Lujan’s (R-San Antonio) comeback followed a familiar path.

Harrison defeated Wray, 55%-45%, to win the unexpired state House term of U.S. Rep. Jake Ellzey (R-Waxahachie). Harrison held a narrow 221-vote lead after early voting, then pulled away by taking 59% of the Election Day vote in Ellis Co. and 71% of it in Henderson Co. Turnout was 9.2% of registered voters.
