U.S. senator before election

Bob Krueger

Elected U.S. Senator

Kay Bailey Hutchison

The 1993 United States Senate special election in Texas was held on June 6, 1993, to replace Democratic U.S. Senator Lloyd Bentsen, who had resigned to become Secretary of the Treasury. Governor Ann Richards appointed Democrat Bob Krueger, a Texas Railroad Commissioner, to fill the seat. Krueger ran in the special election, but was defeated in a landslide by Republican Kay Bailey Hutchison.[1][2] Hutchison was the first Republican to win this seat since Reconstruction. In 2010, Krueger's campaign was named by the Houston Chronicle as the worst in Texas' modern political history.[3]


The nonpartisan blanket primary was held on May 1, 1993.[4] Since no candidate received a majority in the primary, a runoff was held on June 6, 1993.[1]
