What Now for Conservatives in the S.A. Mayor’s Race?

By Don Morgan

San Antonio voters will have to go back to the polls again next month. Not only are several city council seats headed for a runoff, so is the race for Mayor.

We talked to a couple of conservative activists about the Mayor’s race. Former Councilman Carlton Soules was an avid supporter of Democrat Manuel Medina in the race and says it was because it was time for a change. He says when you break down the numbers from Saturday, nearly 60 percent of the voters casts ballots for someone other than Mayor Taylor.

We wanted to know why Manuel Medina fell short of the runoff. He says Medina was too aggressive and that didn’t go over with many of the voters. Soules served on City Council with both the Mayor and Councilman Nirenberg but didn’t want to offer an endorsement yet.

KTSA also spoke with Jeff Judson at the Heartland Institute about the Mayor’s race. he says there was a serious lack of conservative voters going to the polls and that added to the probability of a runoff. he says at this point Ron Nirenberg has the upper hand and he will win if there’s another poor showing by conservative supporters of Mayor Taylor. Judson also said he’s not supporting either candidate at this time.

The runoff election is June 10th.
