Cuellar wins over progressive challengers in Democratic race for Texas’ 28th Congressional District
SAN ANTONIO – UPDATE (From AP): U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar has defeated a 26-year-old immigration attorney who mounted a closer-than-expected primary challenge for his South Texas district. Cuellar and his family are fixtures in Laredo, the border city that anchors the district. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi traveled to Laredo a week before the primary to support Cuellar, who sits on the powerful House Appropriations Committee. For that, my family and I thank everyone involved, especially the voters for their display of confidence in my ability to represent Texas’s 28th district,” Cuellar said in a statement Wednesday. I’m already in Washington, D.C., back to work and continuing to fight for the constituents in my district.”---(Original Story)Although Jessica Cisneros won the vote for Texas’ 28th Congressional District in Bexar County, incumbent Henry Cuellar led the race throughout Texas.
