Interesting Election Day for sure.

Many predicted a runoff in a crowded Victoria mayor's race. Didn't happen. Rawley McCoy won the race outright with more than 50 percent of the votes.

Randy Boyd, longtime chairman of the Calhoun Port Authority, outspent his opponents by huge amounts in campaign spending, but voters spoke loudly, ousting Boyd in favor of newcomer Luis De La Garza.

Mark Loffgren won his race against Zach Smith for Victoria Super District 6. Andrew Young beat newcomer Justin Urbano to hold onto his seat. 

In the Victoria Independent School District district race, Mike Mercer easily won a seat.
