Election night update

7:40 p.m. — In early voting results, Austin City Council member Greg Casar jumped out to a big lead over his opponents in the Democratic primary for Texas Congressional District.

Casar won 11,747 votes, amounting to 60%. State Rep. Eddie Rodriguez is in a virtual tie with former San Antonio City Council member Rebecca Viagran, each with 16% of the vote.

On the Republican ticket, former Corpus Christi Mayor Dan McQueen held a narrow lead in that race, which features 10 candidates. McQueen won 1,419 votes, amounting to 23%.

If candidates fail to win more than 50% of the vote, the top two contenders would go head-to-head in a runoff on May 24.

Election Day votes have not yet been counted.


Two frontrunners have emerged in the Democratic primary for Texas Congressional District 35, a district that spans from Austin to San Antonio.

With U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett choosing to seek one of the new congressional seats created in Texas through redistricting, the reliably Democratic district is up for grabs.

Former Austin City Councilman Greg Casar has the fundraising advantage over his opponents, bringing in more than $467,000 in contributions over a two-month span between October and December. He has also racked up endorsements from nationally-known liberal figures, like Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

But State Rep. Eddie Rodriguez has set himself up as an alternative to Casar, attacking him for his voting record on homelessness while serving on the Austin City Council.

Rodriguez has brought in more than $250,000 in contributions in the race.

Though this race has attracted a number of Republican challengers, the winner of the Democratic primary will be heavily favored in the November general election.

Another familiar name vying for the nomination is former San Antonio City Councilwoman Rebecca Viagran. She trails behind Casar and Rodriguez, reporting only $47,000 in campaign contributions.

If the candidates are unable to win more than 50% of the vote on March 1, the primary would be decided by a runoff between the top two contenders.
