Bill Robinson, DeWitt County justice of the peace, Precinct 2, beat his challenger for the GOP nomination Tuesday.
He beat political newcomer Brian Carson.
Robinson, 70, of Yorktown, has served as justice of the peace since 1995.
"I had a lot of people in Yorktown and Nordheim who really got out and supported me," Robinson said. "I congratulate Carson. It was the first time he had run."
In his time as justice of the peace, Robinson has tried his best to keep up with the ever-changing laws, he said.
He said he was excited about the win.
"I'll try and gain more knowledge to do the job properly and make sure everyone can be treated fairly."
Robinson encouraged Carson, a foreman for Guadalupe Valley Electric Cooperative, to continue trying his hand at running for public office.
"I appreciate everyone who came out and helped me accomplish winning," Robinson added.
He does not have a Democratic Party challenger in the Nov. 4 general election.
