After early votes were tallied in Travis County, José Garza is on the way to being the next district attorney.
Garza received 70.98% of the vote in the heavily Democratic Travis County, or 367,784 total votes, compared to 29.02% of early votes for Republican challenger Martin Harry, or 150,354 total. In July, Garza defeated incumbent District Attorney Margaret Moore with 68.1% of the vote.
"This year the residents of Travis County have sent a clear and resounding message that they expect a criminal justice system that treats people fairly, regardless of their income, regardless of the color of their skin, regardless of their immigration status," Garza said. "... One of the ways that we need to do that is we have to be clear that if a law enforcement officer engages in misconduct, if he breaks the law here in Travis County, he will be held accountable."
The county will also have a new face at county judge. Sarah Eckhardt vacated her position when she chose to run for the Texas Senate and ultimately won the race to represent District 14 at the Capitol. Sam Biscoe has been serving as the interim judge since, and he will be replaced by the winner of the Nov. 3 election.
Andy Brown, the Democratic nominee, is headed toward a win. He received 366,519 early votes, or 70.82%. Republican challenger Michael Lovins had 29.18% of the early vote.
"My number one priority is criminal justice reform ... I'll be working from the very beginning trying to reform our criminal justice system here in Travis County, invest more in mental health, invest more in behavioral health options and continue the work that I've done on the sobering center," Brown said. "So [I'll be] looking for additional ways to do that—to make smarter investments in our community so that our jail does not continue to be the single largest line item in our Travis County budget."
