U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke of El Paso appeared to best his two opponents, Sema Hernandez and Edward Kimbrough.
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke have clinched their party’s nominations and will face off in the general election in November, according to the Associated Press.
In an email to supporters, O’Rourke said he was grateful.
“Over the next eight months, I will continue to do what you’ve asked of me. I will visit with Texans wherever they are, in every part of the state — without regard to party, geography, or anything else that might otherwise divide us,” he said.
“We’re going to do this the right way — taking our direction from the people of Texas, from every walk of life, to do the important, ambitious work that the country is waiting for.”
