Voters in House District 125 will have the chance to cast a vote for former City Councilman Ray Lopez or businessman Fred Rangel starting Monday.
Fred Rangel, the lone Republican candidate in the race for HD 125, will face former City Councilman Ray Lopez in the runoff election.
The special election for Texas House District 125 has pulled a predictably low number of voters during the early voting period.
Four Democrats and one Republican are running in a Feb. 12 special election to replace Justin Rodriguez as Texas House representative for District 125.
The seat in HD 125 became vacant when Justin Rodriguez was sworn in as Bexar County Commissioner, triggering a special election for his former office in the Texas Legislature.
Bexar County Elections Department has been using voting machines that are well past the typical 10-year life span.
Republican Pete Flores credits his successful flip of Senate District 19 to a campaign based on “core values we all have.”
Republican Pete Flores secured 53 percent of the vote while opponent Pete Gallego had 47 percent.
Gov. Greg Abbott called a July 31 special election to replace Carlos Uresti, who resigned in June after he was convicted on felony charges.
Candidates are lining up for the day – maybe soon, maybe not – when two Texas Senate incumbents get out of the way.
