Election night update

11 p.m. — Activist Josey Garcia is poised to win the Democratic primary in Texas House District 124.

Garcia won 69% of the vote. Gerald Brian Lopez, a Northside ISD trustee trailed behind with 23% of the vote.

“It just really goes to show that hard work and dedication that my campaign put in and that we did block walking,” Garcia said. “Good old fashioned community outreach work. And hopefully in November I will be the Texas State Representative for House District 124.”

Background

Texas House District 124 (KSAT)

With Texas House District 124 Rep. Ina Minjarez seeking the Bexar County Judge seat, three Democrats and one Republican are vying to represent the West Side district in 2022.

In the Democratic primary, Josey Garcia, a leader of local grassroots group Reliable Revolutionaries; Steven Gilmore, a criminal defense attorney; and Gerald Brian Lopez, a Northside ISD trustee; are running for the nomination.

On the Republican side, Johnny Arredondo, who is retired, is running unopposed.

Garcia currently holds the financial edge over her primary opponents, records showed. She has brought in more than $60,000 in contributions, while Lopez trails behind with more than $18,000 in contributions.

Garcia is a political activist who spent the last legislative session in Austin advocating for police reform.

As a defense attorney, Gilmore has focused on criminal justice issues.

Because the district is reliably Democratic, the winner of the Democratic primary will have the momentum heading into the general election in November.

If neither Democratic candidate receives more than 50% of the vote, a runoff will be set between the top two candidates.
