Congress, County Nominations to be Decided

By Bill O'Neil

One of the more closely watched races in Tuesday's primary runoff is the battle for the Republican nomination for Congress in District 23. 

"We have an outpouring of support in all 29 counties, and we have a lot of supporters coming out to vote today" said Will Hurd--who told 550 KTSA News he expects a very close contest in the end--one that might be decided by just a couple of hundred votes. 

His opponent--former Congressman Fraqncisco "Quico" Canseco also told us he's cautiously optimistic about what the final count might say.  

"You feel a little nervous about the results. It's going to be a tight race--let'sjust see what happens" Cabseco said.  

The winner will move on and face Democratic incumbent Congressman Pete Gallego--who defeated Canseco two years ago.   

Meanwhile--the battle to replace outgoign Precinct Four Bexar County Commissioner Tommy Adkisson should soon be much clearer. 

Windcrest Mayor Alan Baxter is vying for the Republican nomination--he told 550 KTSA News he'll battle until the last vote is cast. 

"I'm just working hard. I don't look at polls, I don't take opinions on that (from polls)" Baxter said. His opponent-, Kirby Mayor Tim Wilson told us he's also trying to get the vote out.  

"We need to get out as many people and make the right choices" Wilson said.  

The winner will go on the face the victor in the Democratic fight for that party's nomination--featuring Tommy Calvert and Debra Guerrero.
