Texas Elections 2018

In age of Trump, Republican U.S. Rep. Will Hurd's independence again on the ballot in 23rd District

U.S. Rep. Will Hurd, R-Helotes, is looking to hold on to the 23rd District once more as Democrats argue he is not as much of an outlier in his party as his image suggests. His opponent this time is Gina Ortiz Jones, a former Air Force intelligence officer.
