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.
