Republicans Strong in Collin County on Election Night

By Brian Bearden, TSB Contributing Writer

Collin County Republicans swept the local races, then received a big surprise in the national elections.

Current State Rep. Ken Paxton won his District 8 State Senate race with 63.88 percent in the county over Jack Ternan Jr., who earned 80,539 votes.

“Thank you for electing me to serve you in the Texas State Senate,” Paxton said. “I am honored by the trust you have placed in me. I look forward to the new challenges and opportunities that lie ahead as I continue to work alongside you to promote our shared values and conservative principles in Austin.”

Republican’s Jeff Leach, Scott Sanford, Jodie Laubenberg and Van Taylor each won uncontested races for State Representative.

“Thank you for electing me to serve you in the Texas State Senate,” Paxton said. “I am honored by the trust you have placed in me. I look forward to the new challenges and opportunities that lie ahead as I continue to work alongside you to promote our shared values and conservative principles in Austin.”

In House District 33, Republican Scott Turner won his race with 23,846 votes to 4,869 for Michael Carrasco.

Collin County Republicans were hopeful around 7 p.m., then concerned and quiet by 10 p.m. at an election watch party at Fairview Farms in Plano.
