More voters chose Republican Ted Cruz and Democrat Hillary Clinton than their leading primary challengers in almost every county in Texas, according to unofficial results from the Secretary of State.

With 99.8% of precincts reporting, Cruz, came away with 1,238,520 votes, or 43.8% of the total. Donald Trump was following behind with 757,108 votes, or 26.8% of the vote. 

Cruz, one of the state's two U.S. senators, got the most votes in all but seven or eight of the state's 254 counties (As of Wednesday morning, Starr County's results from its Republican primary had not yet been reported to the Secretary of State). Most notably, Trump pulled ahead in Aransas and Webb counties in South Texas, homes to part of the Corpus Christi metro area and Laredo, respectively.

In the Democratic primary, Clinton received 918,491 votes over Sanders' 467,641, giving her a lead of  65.2% to 33.2% of all votes.

She received more votes than Bernie Sanders in all but 15 counties. In Coke and Glasscock counties, the candidates tied with 25 and 4 votes, according to the Secretary of State's numbers with 98% of precincts reporting. In Austin's Travis County, Sanders received nearly 74,000 votes, more than 4,500 over Clinton.
