Texas House speaker survives challenge from Trump-backed candidate

The Republican speaker of the Texas House narrowly survived a primary challenge Tuesday from a candidate backed by former president Donald Trump and his in-state allies.

The speaker, Dade Phelan, was leading challenger David Covey by 366 votes when the Associated Press projected a Phelan victory. Covey is a former county party chair in the southeast Texas district.
