Bill Turner was elected to a 7th term as Brazos County District Attorney receiving nearly 54 percent of the vote, beating former judge Rick Davis in the November general election.
Nearly 29,850 residents voted for Turner, while Davis received 25,565 votes.
Turner, who's a Democrat, has served as district attorney for the past 24 years, and said he's looking forward to another four more.
"I appreciate the voters giving me another chance to represent Brazos County," Turner said Tuesday night.
Turner also talked about his top priorities during his next term in office.
"Bryan PD has identified that street gangs are a real problem, so we're looking at being aggressive about keeping that kind of violence off the streets. Also, both school districts are worried about fighting in schools and so we're starting to work with the school districts to make it easier for law enforcement to step in and try to end some of that fighting," Turner said.
