FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - Fort Worth Congresswoman Kay Granger has survived the strongest challenge in her 24-year career in the House of Representatives.

Running against Chris Putnam, Granger ended up with a three-to-two margin which some analysts attribute to an endorsement from President Trump.

On the Democratic side, Lisa Welch won her primary with over 80 percent of the vote, earning the right to challenge Granger in District 12 in November.
