Gonzales narrowly defeats challenger in House primary runoff in Texas

Rep. Tony Gonzales, a Texas Republican, narrowly eked out a win Tuesday against pro-gun YouTuber Brandon Herrera in a contest that was a proxy fight for how House Republicans should be governing in Washington.

Gonzales defeated Herrera with 50.7 percent of the vote in a Republican runoff, according to the Associated Press, to win the GOP nomination in Texas’s 23rd District, which runs along the U.S.-Mexico border. Democrats thought they would have a better shot of poaching the seat if Herrera had won the nomination because of his far-right politics.
