"I think, I believe all Democrat voters will stay Democrat, and I think we can even bring some Republican voters over here because I'm going to be the person with the most experience," Palacios said. "I'm going to be the person that's worked with our citizens before."
Palacios will face Republican candidate Juan Tijerina, who ran unopposed in Tuesday’s primary.
All election results remain unofficial until canvassed.
