Here's What Tuesday's Election Means to Small Businesses in Texas

Date: November 04, 2020

The votes were still coming in Wednesday morning, but it appears there will be little change in the makeup of the Texas Legislature heading into 2021.

 

“Texas is still a business-friendly state,” NFIB State Director Annie Spilman said. “That’s good, because we need pro-small business legislators to pass COVID-19 liability protections and stop cities and counties from trying to override state government and regulate private employment practices on their own.”  

“2020 has been a trying year for Texas’ small businesses, but we’re encouraged that voters supported the candidates with a record of supporting small businesses,” Spilman said.

U.S. Senate race

The Associated Press, meanwhile, has called the U.S. Senate race for Sen. John Cornyn. With about 80% of votes counted by Wednesday morning, he led Democratic challenger Mary Hegar with 53.8% of the total.
