FILE - This combination of file photos shows candidates for Texas' 23rd District Congressional seat in the November 2018 election from left, incumbent GOP Rep. Will Hurd and Democrat Gina Ortiz Jones. Ortiz Jones has headed to Washington for congressional orientation even though she trails incumbent Hurd by 1,000 votes in their contested race to represent a sprawling West Texas district.

She hasn't so far, instead seeking to have more provisional votes counted. (AP Photo/File)
