Former White House physician Ronny Jackson wins Texas runoff [View all]

Source: MSN

Ronny Jackson, President Trump's former White House physician, won the GOP runoff in Texas's 13th District, leaving him well placed to be elected to Congress in November in the reliably red district.

Jackson led with 56 percent of the vote with 87 percent of precincts reporting, according to The Associated Press. He defeated Josh Winegarner, a lobbyist, in the race to replace Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas), who's retiring after 13 terms.

Trump tweeted Tuesday night to congratulate the former White House official and spoke with him on the phone. The president endorsed Jackson, a former Navy officer, in February ahead of a crowded primary on March 3 where no single candidate won a majority.

Jackson will face off against Democrat Gus Trujillo, who prevailed in his party's runoff on Tuesday.
