Texans awoke Wednesday morning to a familiar sight as the state remained red, coinciding with a big win for the GOP on Election Day as Republicans took both the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.

Tuesday also decided the state’s first new governor in 14 years: Republican Greg Abbott. As of 4 p.m. Wednesday, 99.98 percent of precincts statewide reported Abbott having a 59.25 percent lead with 2,744,134 ballots cast in his favor to Democratic candidate Wendy Davis’ 38.94 percent, or 1,829,828 votes.  Abbott will now begin an immediate transition from his current role as the state attorney general to governor.

  1. I’ve had the pleasure of attending some of the workshops presented by Mr. Cascos here on SPI. I think the voters made the right choice again.
