The Latest: Runoff to replace TX rep accused of harassment ...

The race to replace a Texas congressman who’s not seeking re-election amid allegations of sexual harassment is headed to a primary runoff.

Republicans Bech Bruun and Michael Cloud advanced Tuesday from a five-candidate field in the South Texas congressional district that currently represented by U.S. Rep. Blake Farenthold.

Farenthold announced in December he wouldn’t seek re-election amid pressure from fellow Republicans. He did so while denying 3-year-old accusations that he’d subjected a former aide to sexually suggestive comments.
