Sweeping Bell County win fuels Buckley upset

A sweeping win in Bell County voting precincts Tuesday helped propel Dr. Brad Buckley, the unofficial GOP nominee for the Texas House District 54 election, to an upset runoff victory over incumbent Rep. Scott Cosper.

 On Tuesday, Buckley, of Salado, won 18 of 20 district voting precincts in Bell County, with overwhelming leads in Salado and rural county precincts south of Killeen.

Buckley, a veterinarian, received 2,889 total votes in Bell County — or 57.7 percent of the electorate — to Cosper’s 2,117 votes.
