Doggett survives redistricting challenge

Long-time Austin-area congressman Lloyd Doggett handidly won the Democratic Primary for House District 35 Tuesday night.

After the redistricting process changed his previous District 25 to heavily favor a Republican base, Doggett settled on District 35 - a dumbell shaped district connecting East Austin and Northeast San Antonio via a sliver of Interstate 35.

Doggett was expected to face heavy competition from Bexar County tax assessor Sylvia Romo; however, Doggett lead handily in early voting totals and never looked back. Doggett gathered more than 73% of the vote with Romo collecting less than 25%. Maria Alvarado, a San Antonio native and military veteran, came in a distant third.

Doggett will face former San Marcos mayor Susan Narvaiz in the November election. Narvaiz also avoided a runoff on the GOP side, collecting slightly more than 51% of the vote against two other challengers.
