CBS News reports:
Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott, the 48th Governor of the state, has been re-elected for a second term on Tuesday night.
He defeated Democrat and former Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez, 71. Valdez, 71, was a barrier-breaking candidate who could have become Texas’ first openly gay, Hispanic governor.
Her base of Texas liberals largely overlooked her run and instead poured their energy — and tens of millions of dollars — behind Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s high-profile Senate run.
