New District 27 Representative Michael Cloud will begin work today, taking over the rest of scandal-plagued Blake Farenthold’s term that ends in January. 

Cloud will be sworn-in at 5:30 p.m. (central) in Washington D.C. after winning the special election last month. 

Cloud captured nearly 55% of the vote in the special election.

Cloud will run again in November for the next full-term.
