CORPUS CHRISTI - Republican Blake Farenthold will hold on to his District 27 Congressional seat that he won from longtime incumbent Solomon Ortiz in the last general election. The demographics of the district have significantly changed with redistricting, as the area no longer represents the Rio Grande Valley, but still includes northern parts of the Coastal Bend.
Farenthold faced a strong challenge from Democrat Rose Meza Harrison. He received 57% of the vote by night's end. Farenthold credits his record for his re-election.
"I feel like in my case it's saying I done a good job. I've reached out to both sides of aisle and represented folks whether they voted for me the first time or didn't and it's something i'm going to continue to do," Farenthold said.
