Interactive map: County-by-county election results for key 2022 Texas races

Here's the breakdown for Texas governor, attorney general, lieutenant governor and other key elections.

TEXAS, USA — The polls closed for most of Texas at 7 p.m. on Tuesday.

And results poured in from across the state.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott was vying for reelection against Democrat challenger Beto O'Rourke, and ABC News called the victory for Abbott shortly before 10 p.m.

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick faced a challenge from Mike Collier but was also victorious. And Attorney General Ken Paxton beat Democrat challenger Rochelle Garza, rounding out the key statewide races.

Whereas Democrats have historically fared well in Texas' larger counties, Republicans have traditionally held wide margins in more rural areas.

Abbott won by a similarly wide margin as he did four years ago, but this time against an opponent with much better name recognition and fundraising ability. 

Patrick and Paxton also kept their positions after big wins over their Democratic challengers. It seemed some prominent Republicans' endorsement of Democrat Mike Collier for lieutenant governor wasn't enough.

Texas Republicans said they could also sweep three congressional seats in South Texas, but they were projected to win only one congressional district there. 

Abbott celebrated his win with a speech around 10 p.m. at the Quinta Mazatlan World Birding Center in McAllen.

"We started this campaign in South Texas. We celebrated our primary victory in South Texas," he said in a press release announcing his victory. "Tonight, we return to South Texas to celebrate re-election for four more years of conservative governance.”
