According to Dallas Morning News
Republican U.S. Rep. Henry Bonilla appeared to be headed for a runoff against a Democratic challenger Wednesday, with about 20 precincts in the sprawling district yet to be tallied.
Bonilla, R-Texas, needed 50 percent of the vote in Tuesday’s special election to avoid a runoff. With more than 93 percent of the precincts reporting, he was at just over 48 percent, according to the Texas Secretary of State’s Web site.
All precincts in the district’s population anchor, Bexar County, had been counted, leaving a few spots in West Texas, including Val Verde County, to decide whether Bonilla would face former Rep. Ciro Rodriguez in a December runoff.
ah, the beauties of re-re-re-districting. It is certainly an efficient use of tax dollars, by golly.
