Van Taylor, left, and Keith Self Republican Congressman Van Taylor fell just short of avoiding a runoff in Tuesday’s Texas Primary election, and today (Wednesday, March 2), Taylor fell out of the race altogether, announcing that he was withdrawing from the runoff.

Taylor made the announcement at the same time that he admitted having had an affair a year ago. Taylor has represented U.S. House District 3 since taking office in 2019 after defeating openly lesbian candidate Lori Burch in the 2018 midterms, 54 percent to 44 percent.

Taylor won 49 percent of the of the vote in Tuesday’s GOP Primary. His closest challenger was former Collin County Judge Keith Self, who — with Taylor’s withdrawal from the race — now becomes the GOP nominee with a mere 27 percent of the vote on Tuesday.
