Cynthia Brehm, the incumbent Bexar County GOP chair, faced defeat in the Runoff Primary Election. She gathered about 33% of Republican votes by early Wednesday morning. She was the underdog against challenger John Austin, who bested her on Super Tuesday by 100 votes. In the runoff, he received more than 10,000 votes more than Brehm.


There was a lot at stake on Super Tuesday in 2020, with a hotly contested Democratic presidential primary and several high-profile statewide and local primaries in Texas and Bexar County, respectively.
