Republicans won on all contested tickets in Comal County except two, U.S. Congressional District 28 with Frank Tejeda and State Senate District 21 with Judith Zaffirini. On a day when Republicans gained control of GOP candidates win all but two contested races in county ■ See county's precinct-by-precmct results, Page 6A the U.S. Congress and the governor’s chair, Comal County Republicans dominated the polls as expected A total of 5,133 voted a straight Republican ticket, roughly one quarter of the total voter turnout. In the governor’s race, George W. Bush won all but three of the 30 precincts reporting votes, capturing almost 70 percent of Comal County votes Ann Richards totaled 5,795, or about 30 percent. Kay Bailey Hutchison also dominated the U.S. Senate race with 73 percent of the votes, just more than 14,000 to challenger Richard Fisher’s 4,954. She earned all but two of the 30 precincts reporting. Republican U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith carried the county with nearly 90 percent of the vote for District 21. County Clerk Joy Streator had projected about 20,000 voters The actual total was 19,396 out of 35,011 registered voters as people took advantage of good weather Absentee votes totaled 6,742 or about one-thud of the election-day total. Linnell Hinojosa of the county clerk’s office said a heavy turnout was had, especially in Precinct 11 in Garden Ridge, where 65 percent of the registered voters showed up. ‘‘We ran out of ballots,” said Hinojosa, whose office had to offer an extra 32 ballots to that precinct. Jack Robison Robison wins over Van Horn By ROGER CROTEAU City Editor New Braunfels attorney Jack Robison defeated Democrat Jeff Van Horn last night to win the right to replace retiring Judge Robert T. Pfeufifer on the bench of the 207th District Court. The district covers Comal, Caldwell and Hays counties. With most of the vote counted Robison, a Republican, had a comfortable lead of 19,936 to 13,780 There were still several boxes to count in Hays and Caldwell counties, but both candidates acknowledged that the outcome was clear. Robison ran strongest in Comal County, his home, piling up a 7,700 vote margin here — 12,949 to 5,235. Van Horn enjoyed a more than two to one margin in Caldwell County — 2,022 to 970 — with four boxes still uncounted, but turnout for the race there appeared to be light. Van Horn also had a 203 vote lead in the Hays County polls— 6,518 to 6,315 — with 68 percent of the vote counted. "I am delighted,” Robison said. "It has been a year and a half running for a job that put my family through financial stress to get and that will pay less than I have made in years ” But Robison said he wanted to serve as judge because he felt he could serve the counties better than the other prospective candidates. "I was also very unhappy with the perception of our legal system,” he said. "Of the three branches of government, the one area that is still very functional is the judiciary and ! would like to be a part of that.” Robison said the biggest factor Tuesday night was simply running as a Republican on a big night for the GOP Robison has been in private law practice in the New Braunfels area for 13 years, and also spent a year as a briefing attorney for the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. His opponent, Democrat Jeff Van Horn, conceded defeat in an interview Wednesday morning. "It’s obvious what the outcome is going to be ... I attribute it to being a matter of partisan politics,” he said. "I’m glad it’s over with and I’m ready for a normal life again. I enjoyed meeting people, but there are other things about the political process I didn’t enjoy and will never enjoy.” Asked if ii thinks he will run for public office again, Van Horn said, ‘‘Never say never, but I think it’s highly unlikely.” Watchful eyes Herald-Zeitung photo by TECLO J GARCIA Members of the Comal County Republican Party watch as news of Republicans winning the majority of the U.S. House and Senate was broadcasted.

Schwab said his victory with 73 percent of the vote showed that the Water Oriented Recreation District concept of tourists paying for law enforcement and litter cleanup with user fees is catching on. “People don’t understand that I’m trying to save the taxpayers money. WORD is the whole issue,” Schwab said. ‘The guy that put her up to running against mc doesn’t understand the issue Why should the people of Garden Ridge or Hunter or Fischer Store pay for the extra police on the river.” Schwab said he feels he deserves a second term. “I feel that the last four years I’ve done a decent job," he said. “We’ve elevated a whole bunch of people Our Road Department is in fine shape We’ve got the best roads of all surrounding counties. Our Sheriff’s Department is second to none. I can’t take the honors for all of that but I was one-fifth of it. Another thing I am proud of is we got our workers’ wages up to a living salary. It wasn’t long ago we had employees eligible for food stamps This is what upsets me—they run this lady against mc because she is anti-WORD One person on a five-man commissioners court isjust going to be a thorn in the side As long as you’ve got the leadership and people that will trust the leader, it will work ” Schwab said he looked forward to the coming term, including working with new Pct. 3 Commissioner Danny Scheel "I’m looking forward to it. Danny Schecl is a working man He is from the working people This is going to be beneficial. I want to keep doing the same thing I’ve done and help the employees.” Lois Duggan said she was honored to fkuticipate in the democratic process and offer a choice to voters. "I thank all of those who had faith in me and voted for me,” she said. "You never win when you offer yourself for public service—you never win or lose—it’s up to the voters and I hope they’re happy with the choices they made It has nothing to do with what I do or will continue to do in the’future. Community interest means far more to me than wearing a party label.
