Runoff election results

Incumbent candidates L. Arnoldo Saenz, county judge, and Pct. 4 Commissioner Javier N. Garcia both lost in Tuesday's Democratic runoff election.

Counting was slowed because of a power outage, and final results were posted at about 1:20 a.m. Wednesday.

There is no Republican candidate for JWC Judge, but there is a Republican candidate for Pct. 4 Commissioner. They will be in the general election in November. The winners will take office Jan. 1.

Final results:

JWC Judge:
Arnold Saenz - 2,353
Pete Trevino - 2,583

Pct. 4 Commissioner:
Emede Garcia - 1,149
Javier Garcia - 1,043

Trevino thanked his supporters for the win.

"I want to thank all of my supporters, and I want to let Jim Wells County know I didn't win this alone," he said. "I feel strongly Jim Wells County wanted it. We wanted to send a message that we are going to work hard and go 110 percent. We did that through the whole campaign. I just want Jim Wells County to know that they made the right choice. I'm going to work hard for them. I'm ecstatic that they gave me the opportunity to be the new county judge."
