runoff election results

Burnt Orange Report has projected the following races in today's primary runoff election:
Railroad Commissioner: Mark Thompson
32nd Congressional District: Eric Roberson

22nd Congressional District: Pete Olson
That's right, the Republicans rejected Shelley Sekula-Gibbs, who only received around 31% of the votes in her party's primary. The Republicans will now send Pete Olson to face off against the incumbent, Democrat Nick Lampson.

In a surprising turn of events, Mark Thompson defeated Dale Henry in the Democratic runoff race for railroad commissioner. In the run-up to the election, Henry's campaign revealed that Thompson had not voted between Nov. 1996 and the March 2008 primary in which he was a candidate.
