Jenny Garcia Sharon won the Republican nomination for the Austin-area 37th Congressional District in the May 24 runoff.

Jenny Garcia Sharon led the Republican primary runoff with 6,908 votes, or just over 59%. Her opponent, Rod Lingsch, received 4,769 votes.

The district covers South, Central and North Austin with the eastern edge stopping near I-35. The district was formed by the Texas Legislature during the most recent redistricting process and has no incumbent.

Both candidates were forced into the runoffs after failing to secure more than 50% of the vote in a three-way contest during the March 1 primaries.

Garcia Sharon will face Democrat Lloyd Doggett in the general election.

Results are unofficial until canvassed.
