Republican John Lujan won a special election runoff for Texas House District 118 on Tuesday, flipping the seat red.

Lujan won with 51.2% of the vote, while his Democrat rival Frank Ramirez had 48.8%, according to unofficial results. The district is in San Antonio in south Texas , indicating Republicans are gaining a foothold in the heavily Hispanic area.

The article goes on to state the following:

President Joe Biden won the district by 14 points in 2020.


The Texas House seat was vacant because Democrat Leo Pacheco, who was elected in 2020 with 56.7% of the vote, had resigned to assume a job with a university.

“Our district has been blue for years, but the red wave has started. Vote John Lujan this November to turn this seat Republican,” Lujan says in his campaign video ad.

Voters did exactly that.

“As all eyes have been focused on Virginia and New Jersey, Texas got even more Republican tonight. Republican John Lujan from San Antonio was just elected to the Texas House of Representatives. He won an open seat that had been held by a Democrat,” wrote Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Twitter.

“Thank you to the people of HD 118! I am honored and excited to be your State Representative-Elect. We made history last night. Freda and I are beyond grateful to every person who volunteered, voted, and supported our campaign in any way,” Lujan tweeted after winning the election.
