Here are the key primary election runoff results from Texas

Updated May 25, 2022 at 10:26 AM ET

Four states held primaries Tuesday: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgiaand Texas, where there were runoff races following an election on March 1.

In Texas, incumbent Attorney General Ken Paxton topped George P. Bush, nephew of former President George W. Bush and the state's land commissioner, in a GOP runoff.

There were runoffs for both Democrats and Republicans in Texas' 28th Congressional District. For Democrats, a highly contested race between incumbent Rep. Henry Cuellar and progressive challenger Jessica Cisneros remained too close to call. Cassy Garcia, a former staffer for Sen. Ted Cruz, won the GOP runoff.

An earlier version of this results page said Ken Paxton and George P. Bush were competing for lieutenant governor, not attorney general.
