Voters in Texas’ sixth congressional district elected state representative Jake Ellzey on Tuesday night in a special election. Ellzey defeated former President Trump’s endorsed candidate, Susan Wright, whose late husband previously held the seat. Wright was also endorsed by Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY).


Democrats were shut out of the runoff in May, guaranteeing GOP control of the seat. The National Republican Congressional Commitee (NRCC) congratulated Ellzey on a "hard-fought" victory.

“Congratulations to Jake Ellzey on a hard-fought win. #TX06 District has elected a staunch conservative who will fight Democrats’ socialist agenda of open borders, higher taxes and massive spending packages that are causing the cost of goods to skyrocket," Chairman Tom Emmer (R-MN) wrote in a statement.


Ellzey's victory knocks Speaker Pelosi's majority in the lower chamber down to just 8 seats.
