The Navy SEAL veteran who was mocked by Pete Davidson for losing an eye in Afghanistan has won his House race and become Texas’ youngest congressional representative.

Republican Dan Crenshaw, 34, was declared winner with 53 per cent of the vote with 87 per cent of precincts reporting.

He beat Democrat Todd Litton, who received 45 per cent of the vote, and will replace outgoing Republican Rep. Ted Poe in U.S. House District 2.

Shortly after his victory, he tweeted: ‘Texans are hard working, love their country and believe in the American ideal; the greatest set of ideas for a free people that the world has ever known.

As a team that was the message we spread for the last year. Thank you for your dedication and trust. See you in Washington!’

And in his victory speech, Crenshaw talked about the team who helped him win, including a man named John Noonan who convinced him to run.

He joked: ‘He’s very upset right now, he’s upset because the recent Saturday Night Live controversy has resulted in me having more Twitter followers than he does.’

His win came just days after Davidson joked on Saturday Night Live that viewers ‘may be surprised to hear that Crenshaw is a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie’ while a photograph of him wearing an eye-patch flashed on the screen.

He then laughed, saying: ‘I’m sorry. I know he lost his eye in the war or whatever.’

Crenshaw fired off a nonchalant tweet afterwards which said Davidson, who was until recently Ariana Grande’s fiance, was the ‘real atrocity’.
