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.
