Updated: Wednesday, May 30 2012, 05:25 PM CDT
(AP) -- Roger Williams will face Wes Riddle in a run-off for the Republican nomination to represent congressional district 25 in Central Texas.

No candidate won the 50 percent plus one necessary to earn the nomination. The two men will now face a run-off election on July 31.

The race is to replace U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett, who is running for re-election in the new congressional district 35. District 25 was dramatically redrawn by the Texas Legislature last year to ensure a Republican victory. Twelve Republican candidates competed for the seat that will represent a large area stretching from southwest Austin up to Cleburne, just south of Dallas.2 Head To Runoff For GOP Nod To Replace Doggett
