The Democratic candidate for the US senate seat is former State Representative Paul Sadler.
His watch party is at the Driskill Hotel.
Paul Sadler remains confident. He says he has noticed a definite shift in the past 10 days. People are stopping him and telling him they voted for him.
He is seeing a lot of activity on his Facebook page, we're talking millions of new hits.
FOX 7 caught up with Sadler this afternoon at his office in downtown Austin. He says today is about thanking his volunteers and the voters. He did make a couple stops at polling places and this is his message for those who maybe haven't made up their minds just yet.
"I'm the most qualified candidate. I have a record that you can depend upon. You don't have to guess what kind of legislator I'm gonna be. I'm gonna be bi-partisan. I'm gonna try to solve problems, that my history. Everyone that has written about me, from Texas monthly to George Bush and his book of charts to keep, have all described me that way. You don't have to guess what you're getting with me. My opponent doesn't have a record, never been elected, never served in any capacity, and so, to me, that's where the risk is and that's the difference," said Sadler.
Sadler was a State Rep. From 1991 through 2002. He is big on education and women's healthcare.
He's been endorsed by the Austin American Statesman, The Dallas Morning News, San Antonio Paper and several others.
