According to unofficial results, Dr. Donna Campbell has won the Republican nod for State Senate District 25, ousting long-time incumbent Sen. Jeff Wentworth with 66.18 percent to Wentworth's 33.81 percent with 265 of 286 precincts reporting.
Wentworth said he is disappointed in the results, but he is appreciates his constituents electing him to serve in years past.
"I'm obviously disappointed by the results of today's election, but that sense of disappointment is outweighed by enormous gratitude," he said.
Wentworth said he is proud of the work he has done, having either authored or sponsored 565 bills during his time as a lawmaker. He said he believes the people have "misdirected their fire," and that hurt both him and Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, who was defeated by Ted Cruz for the Republican nod for one of Texas' U.S. Senate seats.
"The Congress in Washington couldn't even adopt a budget and continued spending money they didn't have by printing it or borrowing it from the Chinese," Wentworth said. "[Voters] should be angry with Washington, not Austin, but they didn't make that distinction."
