Congressman Blake Farenthold Wins the 27th Congressional District of Texas Seat

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Congressman Blake Farenthold (R-TX) was reelected to a third term in the U.S. House of Representatives this evening.

“Tonight’s results show our dedication to meeting the needs of the people of Texas, our message of securing the border, making government accountable to the people, ensuring our veterans receive the benefits they have earned, and providing conservative leadership resonates with the voters of the 27th Congressional District of Texas.” Farenthold said.

“I can’t wait to get back to work dealing with the serious challenges we face, such as the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, getting government spending under control, and protecting America from terrorist threats like ISIL as well as the threat of diseases like Ebola.” Farenthold continued.

Farenthold defeated his primary opponent by a comfortable margin.

“I want to congratulate Lt. Col. Reed on his efforts and thank him for his service to our Country.”
