Election upsets in nation, county

Precinct 3 Constable-Elect, Sherman Eagleton sends his heartfelt thanks to each and every voter that took the time to cast a ballot in the 2016 election. Sherman thanks his family, the Team Eagleton volunteers, the community, and especially the officers and staff of Precinct 3 that all came together to help make this possible. While we know there is a lot of work to do before taking office, January 1, Constable-Elect Eagleton is looking forward to working with the community and the officers to create the vision he’s shared with so many.

HARRIS COUNTY– Election results for this county are a stunning reminder of the power of the public and that the will of the people is beyond the predictability of pollsters.

Locally, the largest percentage lead of all went to Republican Brian Babin in the U.S. House of Representatives District 36 for 87% over H.J. Ridley Jr. 10%.

Hillary Clinton took 54.01% of Harris County votes over Donald Trump 41.97%. Libertarian Gary Johnson had 3.01% and Jill Stein with assistance of Ajamu Baraka in the Green Party mustered 0.89%. But national returns are another matter.

Hillary Clinton conceded with seven states too close to call and Donald Trump modestly accepted.
