Fort Bend Blues

Fort Bend County is one of the fastest-growing counties in the nation and is rapidly turning blue. 

Senate challenger Beto O'Rourke won the county by 12 points over  incumbent Ted Cruz, who won the overall race by two percentage points.   

Voters sent Republican Pete Olson and Democrat Al Green back to Congress, but made big changes locally.  County Judge Robert Hebert is out in favor of Democrat and Fort Bend ISD board member KP George. 

Fellow Democrat Brian Middleton was picked to replace the retiring John Healy as district attorney.  He's the first Democrat in 26 years - and the first black man ever - to hold the position.

Fort Bend voters also approved the big school bond issue with more than 74-percent approval.

Republicans maintained their majorities in Galveston, Brazoria, and Montgomery Counties.
