Original story: Rep. Francisco “Quico” Canseco, R-San Antonio, conceded Friday to Rep.-elect Pete Gallego, D-Alpine. Gallego will take over as the 23rd district representative when the 113th Congress convenes on Jan. 3.
Updated with statement from Gallego: In a statement released by his campaign, Gallego said, “I appreciate the congratulatory call from Mr. Canseco. It was a long and difficult campaign for both of us. While all of us have opinions and many of us have complaints, fewer are the individuals who actually put their name on a ballot.”
