In General Election balloting last week, funding was approved to address transportation issues in Collin County along with a slew of county and state office holders.
The General Election was conducted Tuesday, Nov. 6 and held few surprises. A Blue Wave ushering Democratic candidates into office failed to materialize, with only a few exceptions.
One of those exceptions was in the race for U.S. Representative, District 32 that pitted long-time Republican incumbent Pete Sessions against Democratic challenger Colin Allred, a civil rights lawyer and former National Football League player. Allred won the office with 142,885 votes (52.16 percent) to 125,600 (45.85 percent) for Sessions.
Allred did not win approval in the Collin County part of the district but picked up the necessary votes for victory in Dallas County.
