Rep. Hurd Election Race Too Close to Call

The race between Rep. Will Hurd, R-Texas, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee’s IT subcommittee, and challenger Gina Ortiz Jones, is too close to call, according to media outlets. While Hurd initially appeared to win, prompting the Associated Press to call the race in his favor and leading Hurd to declare victory, Ortiz Jones has since narrowed the gap, leaving the race currently sitting narrowly in Hurd’s favor. Ortiz Jones has not conceded, and has called for provisional ballots and military absentee votes to be counted.
