BROWNSVILLE - Democrat Luis Saenz is the next Cameron County district attorney.
Saenz received 38,909 votes to Republican Chuck Mattingly's 19,191 after 50 percent of the polls were counted.
Mattingly said he had an uphill battle trying to win as Republican in Cameron County. He tried to convince people to vote for the person and not the party.
Saenz ran on his record as prosecutor. He was the county's district attorney from 1990 to 1998.
