A final recount Tuesday confirmed U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, the last pro-life Democrat in the U.S. House, as the winner of the Texas primary election against pro-abortion candidate Jessica Cisneros.

Townhall reports Decision Desk HQ announced Cuellar as the winner of the Democratic primary for the 28th Congressional district of Texas. Cuellar won by 290 votes, according to his campaign.

“I am an American, Texan, then a Democrat – in that order – and I will continue to fight for Texas values and not let coastal elites bring their failed agenda to our communities,” Cuellar said after the recount.

Democrats for Life of America wrote following the victory, “It was the right decision for Democrats and will keep the 28th District Blue,” the pro-life organization said in a statement. “Had she been the nominee, Jessica Cisneros would have easily lost the seat to the Republicans because of her pro-abortion extremism.”
