SAN ANTONIO – The polls have closed and the votes counted after a special runoff election to fill the Texas House District 118 seat.

Republican John Lujan defeated Democrat Tomas Uresti on Tuesday for the right to finish the remaining term.

The seat was left open after Joe Farias resigned last month.

Lujan and Uresti will be back on the ballot in March.

Each has a challenger in the primary.
