Tuesday’s runoffs sent four new members to the 84th Legislature and created yet another vacancy in the House:

  • Jose Menendez defeated Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer, 59-41, flipping the special election result in SD26
  • Leighton Schubert defeated Carolyn Bilski, 57-43, flipping the special election result in HD13
  • John Cyrier held off a furious comeback by Brent Golemon to win HD17 by a 52-48 margin, and
  • Diego Bernal defeated Nunzio Previtera, 64-36, to win HD123.

Once the votes are canvassed and Menendez has been sworn in as senator, Gov. Abbott will call a special election for HD124.
