District 40 race down to the wire on Election Day

It's down to the wire in the race for the Texas State Reprsentative District 40 seat in Hidalgo County.

Both Terry Canales and Gus Hernandez are vying for the Edinburg-based seat.

It's been one of the livier races in the Rio Grande Valley with mudslinging on both sides.

But voters went to the polls for the July 31st Democratic Party primary to decide who will get the nomination.

The two candidates spent Tuesday criss-crossing the district to get last-minute support.

The winner does not face a Republican challenger in November.
