Democrat Gina Ortiz Jones has conceded to Republican incumbent Rep. Will Hurd in the hotly contested race for Texas' 23rd congressional district, reports the Dallas Morning News.

Why it matters: The district is majority Hispanic and stretches for hundreds of miles along the U.S.-Mexico border, making it a microcosm of Texas' shifting demographics. Democrats made it a primary target in the midterms — and it was one of Axios' 8 for 2018 — but Jones fell about 1,000 votes short. In her concession statement, she said, "Our campaign was based on the belief that everyone is equal — equally deserving to be heard at the ballot box and served in our communities. We worked hard to make this a reality, understanding this is the only path toward the more perfect union that our founders envisioned."
