Dallas County residents chose Republicans by a landslide in most state races and only one Democrat won election to a national office Tuesday, during midterm elections, but at a local level the Republicans faltered.

Incumbents were selected to one national Senate seat and six House seats serving Dallas County. Eddie Bernice Johnson, House District 30, was the only Democrat selected. Each of the seven positions were filled by overwhelming approval.

Kay Bailey Hutchison won her Senate seat by 61.62 percent of the vote. While the Texas Republicans cruised in the national elections, Johnson won the largest approval by earning 80.19 percent of the vote.

Sam Johnson and Jeb Hensarling, Republicans which represent areas including Mesquite, Rowlett, Garland and north into Collin County, each won more than 60 percent of the vote in their House districts.

On a state level, it was a Republican sweep with only the governor’s race not being decided by at least 50 percent of the vote going to the Republican candidate.

Rick Perry was locked in a five-candidate governor’s race against a Democratic candidate, two independents and a Libertarian candidate. Perry won 39.06 percent of the vote in the closest of the state elections. Chris Bell’s 29.76 percent of the vote as the Democratic candidate was not enough to force a runoff.

Incumbents David Dewhurst and Greg Abbott won the Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General elections, respectively. Susan Combs collected the Comptroller position and incumbent Jerry Patterson took the Land Commissioner post. Rounding out the Republican sweep of state elections were Todd Staples, Agriculture Commissioner; and Elizabeth Jones, Railroad Commissioner. Even the available District 12 Board of Education position went to Republican Tincy Miller, an incumbent.

Democrats dominated the local Dallas County elections, going with a Democrat for district attorney, removing Republican incumbent for county judge Margaret Keliher and electing numerous democrats for judicial posts.

The Democratic dominance in Dallas County could be an indictment of the presidential administration, the war in Iraq, Hurricane Katrina and Republican policies, in general. But Republicans did not lose a top national or state position and only lost one election in those races to Eddie Bernice Johnson.

It wasn’t the story across the nation, where voters restored divided government. The Democrats were awarded control of the House from the Republicans and the senate was split as of early returns. No Democratic incumbent lost in the House or Senate as of early returns Tuesday.
