State of Texas
Schwertner Wins Reelection to the Texas Senate
News Release
Wednesday, November 07, 2018

In a night of mixed results for Texas Republicans, Senator Charles Schwertner prevails over his democratic challenger to win a third term in the Texas Senate

GEORGETOWN, Texas – Tonight, Senator Charles Schwertner (R-Georgetown) secured a critical reelection victory in the campaign to represent Senate District 5; a ten-county region of Central and East Texas that includes Williamson County and the Brazos Valley.  Based on early returns, Schwertner appears to have won reelection over his democratic challenger 55%-42% to return to the Texas Senate for a third term in January.

“I am sincerely honored and humbled by tonight’s victory,” said Schwertner.  “Serving the people of this community has been the honor of my life, and with the election now behind us, I’m eager to get back to work fighting for the families of Senate District 5.”

As Chairman of the Senate Committee on Health and Human Services, Schwertner has made a personal commitment to cracking down on bad nursing homes that mistreat seniors, fighting for increased resources to help those with mental health needs, and reforming the state’s beleaguered foster care system to protect children at risk of abuse and neglect.  Schwertner says he expects to build on these victories in the forthcoming legislative session.

“This campaign has seen its share of challenges, but in the end, the voters of Senate District 5 looked past the political distractions and partisan negativity to send a clear and unambiguous message that they want someone working for them in the Texas Senate who will fight to defend their rights and shared conservative values,” Schwertner continued.

A medical doctor by training, Schwertner has represented Brazos, Freestone, Grimes, Leon, Limestone, Madison, Milam, Robertson, Walker and Williamson counties in the Texas Senate since 2013.  He resides in Georgetown with his wife and three sons.
