Who Won Texas Elections in 2006?
Incumbent Republican Governor Rick Perry retained his seat with 39% of the vote over Democrat Chris Bell (30%). Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison easily won re-election over Democratic challenger Barbara Ann Radnofsky.
In the House elections incumbents ran in 31 of the 32 elections, and all but one won re-election. In the 23rd District incumbent Henry Bonilla received the most votes but not a majority. In a runoff election he lost to Democrat Ciro Rodriquez (pictured) who had been away from Congress after some redistricting in Texas. The 22nd District was an open seat, but flipped to the Democrats when Nick Lampson defeated S Sekula Gibbs.
