Congratulations to Bill Turner of Brazos County for his re-election. As Prosecutor of the Year, he well-deserved 4 more years. Read the local story.

Any other notable results out there?

I would think 4-term DA Stephen Smith's loss in San Angelo might qualify as notable.

I did not have an opponent, but I still think it was a notable result.

Though I contemplated engaging in last-minute mudslinging in my unopposed race, I decided to take the high road. That, too, is notable.

Three cheers for Chuck Rosenthal in Houston. We here at the Harris County Annex feel safer knowing he will be at the helm for four more years.

Congrats to Turner for fending off a nasty, nasty, unqualified challenger.

However, I know of 2 of our electeds who did not fare so well.
Kyle Freeman, the Democratic Rusk Co. DA since 1993 lost, as did Cindy Garner, who's been DA for about as long.
I've worked closely with them both in recent months and wish them all the best.

Congrats to Bill Turner, a class act. To win as a democrat is impressive - support from the whole community had to be there.

Well Jones/Schackleford counties now have a ex-district judge as a DA - Billy John Edwards a republican in counties that tend to lean democratic.

Of course it might also be notable the ex-DA Sky Sudderth lost his bid for District Judge in Brown County

Three of our neighboring County Attorneys were unseated after only one term: Mark Burtner in Lamar County (at the primary), Keith Willeford of Hunt County and Myles Porter in Fannin County.
Re-elected for second terms (unopposed) were Dusty Rabe in Hopkins Co. and Robert Vititow in Rains Co. Reelected (at the primary) and no opponent in general election, in Delta Co., yours truly, hmb.
