Locally, State Rep. incumbent Glenn Rogers edged out challenger Mike Olcott, 886 to 783, but based on information from the Associated Press, that trend did not hold up across District 60.

At 11:50 p.m., the Associated Press projected Olcott as the winner of the primary.

In the race for Texas’ District 25 in the U.S. House of Representatives, incumbent Roger Williams was the winner in Stephens County with similar results in the rest of the district.
