Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw, an Afghanistan War veteran, fended off Democratic challenger Sima Ladjevardian in Texas’ 2nd Congressional District around Houston.

The congressional district has long been held by Republicans. Crenshaw succeeded seven-term Republican Ted Poe, who did not seek re-election in 2016.

Crenshaw’s victory tempers Democratic hopes for gains in Texas, where a surge in early voting had liberals yearning to pull off unexpected wins.

This was an important race for Republicans to win, even though it was in Texas.

Congratulations, Congressman Crenshaw!
