A retired Navy SEAL will join a Texas state representative in the Republican primary runoff in May to replace outgoing U.S. Rep. Ted Poe.

Dan Crenshaw served in Afghanistan and lost his right eye in a battlefield explosion. He'll face State Rep. Kevin Roberts, who has served one term in the state Legislature.

Republican mega-donor Kathaleen Wall did not advance to the runoff despite pumping close to $6 million of her own money into her campaign for District 2 in the Houston area. Her husband is the founder of Houston-based tech company Texas Memory Systems.

Wall also had Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's endorsement.
