Businessman Matt Morgan has defeated State Rep. Jacey Jetton of Richmond in the Republican Primary. 

House District 26 includes part of Fort Bend County. 

The failed impeachment of Attorney General Ken Paxton featured prominently in the race. 

Jetton was among the Republicans who voted to impeach Paxton.  

Morgan—who fell short to Jetton in a runoff in 2020—quickly earned the endorsement of Paxton. He also had the endorsement of U.S. Rep. Troy Nehls, who called Jetton a “liberal.”

During his two terms in office, Jetton earned an “F” rating on the Fiscal Responsibility Index for his votes on fiscal issues.

Morgan will face Democrat Daniel Lee in the November General Election.
