"I want to thank the voters of Harris County for making me their next Harris County DA. To you supporters, you are the people who brought us here and you are who we are going to serve," said Ogg.
Ogg was one of the first people to vote at the Love Park Community Center in the Heights. She showed up a short time after the doors opened at 7 a.m.
“I’m so excited. I’m going in to cast my vote,” Ogg said.
For the second time, Ogg faced Republican incumbent District Attorney Devon Anderson. Anderson was first appointed to the office by the governor to replace her husband Mike Anderson who died from cancer while in office.
Two years ago there was an election for the office, and Devon Anderson defeated Ogg.
