Had Watson won, she would have not only stayed on course to become the third African American woman state senator, she would have possibly become the first ever openly LGBT one in Texas history.
Rita Lucido will get the Democratic nomination for Senate District 17 and will get a rematch with the incumbent senator Joan Huffman (R). Best of luck to her this fall.
Countless other #TeamFran people supported you in your historic bid to become a Texas senator along with several organizations .
I have no doubts that it will happen for you. Unfortunately it wasn't last night.
Something great is in store for you. It's going to be interesting to see exactly what that is.
