Fort Bend County Democrat wins district attorney race and longtime GOP county judge defeated

Fort Bend County residents made history Tuesday night as Democratic candidate Brian Middleton beat Republican opponent Cliff Vacek in hard fought race to become the district attorney. Middleton will become the first ever African American top prosecutor for the county and the first Democrat to hold the critical office in 26 years.

And in a surprising twist, Fort Bend ISD board member KP George, a Democrat, was able to unseat longtime Republican incumbent Robert Hebert for county judge, who’s served in the position for fifteen years.

Middleton, 46, who runs his own law firm in southwest Houston, succeeds John Healey, a Republican, who is retiring from the office at the end of the year.
