With 100 percent of counties and precincts reporting, unofficial results from the Texas Secretary of State's office list Pete Flores as the winner of his runoff against Raul Reyes for District 24 State Senator.

Flores received 59 percent of the vote to Reyes’ 41.

Flores received significant support in Bandera County, pulling in 63.58 percent of the vote from 2,416 voters, according to unofficial election results from the Bandera County Elections department.

Flores, who received endorsements from Republican leadership including President Trump and Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, said in a statement Tuesday night he appreciated the confidence expressed by the voters of District 24.

"I tip my hat in thanks to those who voted for me, and I extend a hand to those who did not. I am ready to do the work you have elected me to do. Thank you," he said.
