Republican incumbent candidate Brian Babin is projected to win the primary race for the 36th Congressional District seat with a significant lead over party opponent RJ Boatman.
With the Texas Secretary of State reporting results from eight of the nine counties in the district, Babin secured 90.32% or 53,272 votes, while Boatman received the remaining 9.68% or 5,712 votes. Babin did not immediately return a request for comment.
Babin first took the seat in 2014. His platform prioritizes border security, health care freedom, cutting taxes, advancing the space program and protecting the Second Amendment, according to his website. Boatman’s platform also prioritizes immigration and tax cuts.
Babin will face Democrat Rashad Lewis in the November general election for the seat. Lewis ran unopposed in the primary.
District 36 includes Webster, Seabrook, Clear Lake City, and parts of Nassau Bay and League City.
All results are unofficial until canvassed.
