The polls are now closed, and here are your results: Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) has handily defeated Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC), by a margin of 64 percent to 36 percent. Although Jackson-Lee’s lead narrowed over time, it was still commanding by the time that voting concluded.
This fight was much closer than Katherine Harris’s demolition of Jo Ann Emerson; but it wasn’t exactly a squeaker. Expect the margins to tighten, and the catfights to grow more competitive, as the tournament goes on.
Later today, we’ll offer you the next catfight up for bids. So come back soon!
