At Large 5 went about as expected after seeing the November results. And Jolanda’s showing in Anglo Dem areas was pretty much the deciding factor here. The tale of the tape is pretty evident in Pct. 222 (pretty much the poster child of Anglo Dem boxes). There, Jack Christie won 67.4 to 32.6 and absolutely no undervote. Montrose precincts were a mixed bag, going roughly 50-50.
The impact of the “rain tax” coalition support that backed Jolanda seems to have had very mixed results. Kingwood boxes never broke double digits while Clear Lake boxes routinely held in the low-20s. Hispanic precincts definitely don’t seem to have done Jolanda any favors, also. Although she had a few successes in particular precincts, there were numerous ones that had her in the low-30s. Whether Jack Christie ends up voting like someone with the support of Hispanic and Anglo Dem voters, as well as those of more conservative Republican types, remains to be seen. As in the case of AL2′s Andrew Burks, it may not prove possible to vote in a way that makes each of those constituencies happy over a 6 year run.
