The 23rd District race from southwest Texas was the most confusing on election night. Rep. Will Hurd (R-San Antonio) was projected the winner, and then not, only to be projected again. But, his opponent, Democrat Gina Ortiz Jones, was challenging his 1,150 vote win, and filing suit that more Bexar County provisional ballots should be counted.
Yesterday, after failing to force any further counting, she conceded to Mr. Hurd, so the Congressman is finally officially elected to a third term. We can again count on a heated battle in the next election, as this swing district typically hosts close elections and has a history of unseating incumbents.
