EL PASO, Texas -- Here are the results of Saturday's special election for two seats on the El Paso City Council:

District 3: Incumbent Cassandra Hernandez will remain the District 3 city council representative. According to the unofficial final results, Hernandez defeated challenger Will Veliz by garnering 52% of all votes cast.

District 6: The top two finishers, Claudia Lizzette Rodriquez and Debbie Torres, will face each other in a run-off election for the District 6 city representative seat as none of the four candidates vying for this seat hit the required 50% vote threshold to win outright. City officials told ABC-7 no date for the runoff election has been set yet, although it will likely take place in mid-January.

  1. Believe it or not, CNN called out Veronica Escobar, calling her a liar, saying she changed wording in her testimony before congress in an attempt to implicate the President. Shows you the kind of people El Paso think should be running the country. Even the City Council has some corrupt and prospective felons on it now!
