The Democratic and Republican primaries for Congressional District 28 are both in runoff races.
On the Democratic side, immigration attorney Jessica Cisneros and Congressman Henry Cuellar went back and forth on the lead. While close to 50%, neither cleared that threshold for the nomination. Cuellar is seeking his 10th term in office.
The race will be closely watched, especially after a leaked Supreme Court draft indicated that Roe v. Wade — the landmark case that legalized abortion — would be overturned. Cuellar was the only House Democrat to vote against federal legislation to codify abortion, which Cisneros has emphasized leading up to the runoff.
On the Republican side, Cassy Garcia will face Sandra Whitten for the nomination.
Garcia outdistanced a crowded pack of candidates in the March primary with 23% of the vote, while Whitten captured 18% of the vote.
Garcia is a political staffer, having served most recently as U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz’s Deputy State Director. She was appointed by then-President Donald Trump in July of 2020 to serve as Commissioner for the White House Hispanic Prosperity Initiative. Whitten, a youth and preschool director, was the Republican nominee for the district in 2020, but lost to Cuellar in the general election.
The winners of both races will face each other in the General Election in November.
