The Dallas Morning News reports on local election results in Texas:
Tim O'Hare, who made a name leading Farmers Branch's efforts to drive out illegal immigrants, was elected mayor of the Dallas County suburb Saturday.
Meanwhile, incumbent mayors and city council members beat challengers who wanted more immigration enforcement in Irving - where campaigns were highly heated and often personal.
But Irving's incumbents - Mayor Herbert A. Gears and council members Allan E. Meagher and Rose Cannaday - successfully fought off their opponents to win re-election Saturday. The winners supported the city's means of combating illegal immigration, but were opposed by two candidates who wanted the city to do more and two who wanted it to soften its approach
