In a message to supporters May 25, Klussmann highlighted his connection to Uvalde, a community he said he has visited since he was a young boy. He expressed his grief and condolences for those affected by the May 24 mass shooting at Robb Elementary School.

“While I am humbled and thankful for all you have done, winning the party’s nomination to run for Congress seems so insignificant at this moment. It is completely meaningless to the families and loved ones who lost so much today in Uvalde,” he said.

Klussmann went on to say when he feels the time is appropriate, he will share his thoughts on how the federal government can make a difference.

District 38 with 66.7% of votes in the May 24 election.

Because neither candidate secured 50% of the votes in the March 1 primary race, the two candidates headed to a runoff to determine who will face Wesley Hunt—the winner of the Republican primary—in the November general election.

The winner of the November election will be the first representative for Texas’ new 38th Congressional District. This new district covers portions of Cypress, Tomball, Klein, Jersey Village, Bear Creek, Spring Branch, Spring Valley Village, Memorial and River Oaks.

Klussmann trailed behind Alexander in the March 1 primary with 39.3% of the votes compared to her 44.6%.

Both candidates are known for their backgrounds in public education. Klussmann is a retired superintendent of Spring Branch ISD and a former member of the Jersey Village City Council. Alexander is an educational diagnostician with 23 years of experience as a public educator.
