Terry says he looks forward to continuing his campaign and getting the job done.
"It feels good. I got a lot of good friends behind me. Myself and Linda Balk are going to rock this out. We're going to win in May," said Terry.
McBride says he too is thrilled about moving on and will continue to work hard.
"The results, it's a little better than I expected. I really didn't think that it would be this close. I figured that there was going to be a clear winner one way or another. To see the results so close, it was humbling, encouraging. I'm cautiously optimistic for the future," said McBride.
Whoever picks up the Republican nomination in May goes on to face Democratic challenger Peggy Ornelas in November. The run-off election is slated for Tuesday, May 22.
