In Texas, based on the exit poll and our analysis of the vote in so far, ABC News projects that in the Senate race, Republican Ted Cruz will win over Democrat Paul Sadler.

Cruz previously served as solicitor general of Texas from 2003 to 2008. He was the first Hispanic solicitor general in the state.

Cruz beat Liutenant Governor David Dewhurst in a runoff for the Republican Senate nomination.
