The hotly contested U.S. House races in Texas' 21st and 23rd districts — both of which include part of San Antonio — remained too tough to call a little after 9:30 p.m.

However, San Antonio's three other congressional races played out largely as expected, with Democratic incumbents wrapping up wins in each. Here's how they played out, according to Decision Desk HQ:

20th District (San Antonio)

Joaquin Castro, Democrat (Incumbent) 65.3%
Mauro Garza, Republican 32.7%

28th District (San Antonio, Laredo, South Texas)

Henry Cuellar, Democrat (Incumbent) 58.2%
Sandra Whitten, Republican 39.3%

35th District (San Antonio and Austin)
Lloyd Doggett, Democrat (Incumbent) 69.1%
Jenny Garcia Sharon, Republican 26.7%
