Local 2020 Election Results

A generation of GOP dominance in Texas wobbled heading into Election Day - the tight polls and record-shattering early turnout of 9 million voters are unlike anything seen here before - nowhere is the state's recent shift into a battleground more on display than in the fight for control of the state House of Representatives. Here are the results from the raced called so far, according to the Associated Press and ABC News.

John Cornyn vs. MJ Hegar for U.S. Senate

ABC News projects U.S. Sen. John Cornyn will win his fourth term, defeating Democratic challenger MJ Hegar.

Houston-native Cornyn has served as Texas senator since 2002. Newcomer Hegar is a Air Force veteran who served three tours in Afghanistan as a combat search-and-rescue and medevac pilot.

A Democratic presidential candidate hasn't won the state since Jimmy Carter in 1976.

This year's senate race was particularly expensive, highlighting a sure sign of competition.

In a recent reporting period, Hegar outraised Cornyn by a 3-1 margin. National donations continued to pour in the days ahead of the election.
