Texas 6th District U.S. House special election results

Two Republicans battled for the seat in the Dallas suburbs: Susan Wright, the Trump-endorsed widow of the district’s former congressman, and state Rep. Jake Ellzey, who narrowly lost a primary bid for the seat three years ago. Voters ultimately rebuked the former president, opting for the legislator and retired Navy fighter pilot. Ellzey outraised and outspent Wright, but the Club for Growth had poured money into ads attacking him. Democrats were locked out of the runoff after multiple candidates split their vote.

Ellzey (R) is projected to win. 100 percent of precincts are reporting.
