One of the nation's last unresolved House races will be decided Tuesday when seven-term Republican Rep. Henry Bonilla faces former congressman Ciro Rodriguez in an unusual runoff in a newly redrawn district. In a special election Nov. 7, a well-financed Bonilla won 49% of the vote, just shy of the majority he needed to win outright.
