Republicans retain tight Kendall County grip

Posted in:

Kendall County’s election results showed that the Republican Party continues to enjoy overwhelming support with Democratic candidates consistently outvoted at a ratio of almost one to four.

Of the nearly 20 thousand votes that were cast for U.S. Senator, Ted Cruz garnered more than 77 percent of the vote, Beto O’Rourke earned almost 22 percent, and Libertarian candidate Neal Dikeman came in at less than one percent. Almost identical numbers were reported in the battle between Chip Roy (Rep) and Joseph Kopser (Dem).

The gubernatorial race showed even sharper contrast with Republican incumbent Greg Abbott rousting Democratic challenger Lupe Valdez with over 80 percent of the vote.

With almost 86 percent of the vote, residing County Judge Darrel Lux easily won over write-in Andy McCall who collected just over 14 percent of voters, while County Commissioner, Precinct 3 went to incumbent Richard Chapman (Rep) with almost 3500 votes in contrast with nearly 900 votes garnered by Benjamin Eldredge (Dem).
