DeLay and a runoff.

Looks like DeLay won the primary with 64% of the vote, where he will face Democrat challenger Nick Lampson.

As for the District 28 Democrat primary, with Cuellar, Rodriguez, and Morales, it looks like there will be a runoff between Cuellar and Rodriguez, though that is by a hair. A runoff occurs when no candidate receives 50%+1 of the vote, and Cuellar received 49% of the vote, with 245 of 276 precincts reporting at this time. Cuellar received 19,426 votes to Rodriguez's 17,536 votes (Morales had 2,627. Makes me wonder who did Morales pull more votes from.... Cuellar or Rodriguez?) - DeLay wins GOP primary - Mar 8, 2006
