SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Congressman Henry Cuellar is headed for a tenth term in Texas’s 28th Congressional District.

As of last night, unofficial results show Cuellar leading Republican Cassy Garcia with nearly 57-percent of the vote.

Cuellar is a pro-life centrist who has criticized President Joe Biden’s border policy. He’s been facing challenges from within his own party in the last two election cycles by Jessica Cisneros.

He barely got through a primary runoff against Cisneros this year, edging his challenger by fewer than 300 votes.

Cuellar has been serving as Congressman for District 28 since 2005.
