|Joan Huffman easily vanquished perennial candidate Chris Bell in the Special Runoff Election in State Senate District 17. She led early voting by a 2-1 margin and never looked back, cruising to a win with 56% of the vote.|
We offer our congratulations to Joan Huffman on her well-run campaign as she protected our Republican majority in the Texas Senate. We want to thank all the people who worked to get Joan elected, including those who worked at the HCRP phone bank and participated in block walks and all the other events that made this campaign a success. We also thank all the folks who came from other SD's to help us keep SD 17 Republican.
Chairman, Harris County Republican Party
