HOUSTON (AP) _ Two Texas House members seeking to fill a state Senate seat left open after longtime Sen. Tommy Williams resigned last year are heading to a runoff election.

 

 

Unofficial election returns from the Secretary of State with 100 percent of precincts reporting show four-term Rep. Brandon Creighton of Conroe got the most votes Saturday, with 45.18 percent. Freshman Rep. Steve Toth of The Woodlands came in second with 23.71 percent. Since no one collected more than half the vote, Toth and Creighton head to a runoff.

 

 

Also on Saturday's ballot were Woodlands businessman Gordy Bunch, with 21.80 percent, and former Sen. Michael Galloway of Magnolia, who drew 9.29 percent.

 

 

All are Republicans. The 4th Senate District includes Jefferson and Chambers counties, plus parts of Harris, Montgomery and Galveston counties.

 

 

Elsewhere:

 

 

Voters in the Cy-Fair ISD approved a 1.2-bilion dollar bond issue.  The money will be used to provide enhanced security on campuses, more school buses, and technology upgrades.
