Texas GOP Activist Wins Right to Replace Ex-Rep. Farenthold

By    |   Saturday, 30 June 2018 10:39 PM EDT

Republican activist Michael Cloud has won the right to replace former Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas, in Congress.

With 89 percent of precincts reporting, Cloud led the field of 9 candidates with 54.2 percent of the vote, The Hill reported.

Cloud is a member of the Texas Republican Party’s central committee, and a former chairman of Victoria County’s Republican Party. He owns a small media production and public relations firm, the report said.

When Congress returns from its July 4 recess, Cloud will begin serving out the rest of Farenthold’s term, the report noted.

Farenthold resigned in April after multiple allegations of sexual harassment and ethical concerns.
