U.S. Rep. Kevin Brady, R-The Woodlands, has won his re-election bid for U.S. Congress District 8 with more than 70 percent of the votes, and state Rep. Will Metcalf, R-Conroe, won his race to represent District 16 in the Texas House with more than 80 percent of the votes.
Heading into the election, Brady, a politician since 1997, said his top priorities were IRS reform, tax reform, trade, retirement security, economic recovery, energy, the environment and border security.
He told Community Impact Newspaper ahead of the vote that he plans to continue to work on tax reform and changing the culture in Washington, D.C.
Brady did not respond to requests for comment on election night.
Metcalf, who has already served two terms in office, told Community Impact Newspaper ahead of the election that his top priorities are property taxation and immigration.
“It is an honor to know that the citizens of House District 16 overwhelmingly support our campaign to serve their values and principles in the Texas legislature,” Metcalf said on election night. “I am proud to be an effective representative for Montgomery County, and I look forward to continuing that success in the 86th legislative session. Thank you to all the voters and volunteers who supported our campaign. It is a true honor to represent House District 16 in the Texas Legislature.”
