They meet again in December for a second run at the polls!
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner is heading to a runoff against high-profile attorney Tony Buzbee in his rowdy re-election race.
With all but a few vote centers reporting Wednesday morning, Turner had 47% of the vote in unofficial returns to 28% for Buzbee.
Turner was around 7,700 votes short of winning enough of the vote — over 50% — to avert an overtime round.
The runoff is set for Dec. 14.
