wishes go with the incumbent and the majority of the people who voted in the Repub lican primary Where there is no exchange of views and a lack of competition from another party its up to the conservatives of fine Republican party to offer another point of view I presented concerns and solutions while the incumbent continued to talk in generalities Thats what the powersthatbe in the Texas Legis lature do while voting away our individual property right and increasing property taxes The voters have made their choice but Ill continue to insist that our elected officials be accountable for what they do to us with their votes locally and in the legislature Now that I have the campaign signs Ill be ready to run I will be In the State Senate 25 race Wentworth was trie popular choice in

Wentworth had received a total of votes per cent to a total of percent for Staudt Im elated over the results of the Wentworth said in a phone interview Wednesday morning I really didnt know how things were going to go My campaign did some polling in early and late February that gave us some good numbers but it was really impossible to say what was going to happen in this year of a presidential election Because there were so many Republican candidates and an uncontested Democratic primary we werent sure how many Democrats and Independents would be voting in a Republican primary for the first time or how those first time voters would impact the Wentworth has no opponent in November Staudt commenting on his bid to unseat the incumbent Went worth said he knew from the beginning that he was facing an uphill climb It goes without say ing that the fact that he won by such a large margin was surpris ing to he explained But we knew from the beginning it was going to be difficult based on the fact that incumbents have a 97 percent reelection Police officers testify in fathers trial Contd from Pg 1 police to report the abuse San Antonio Police Patrolman Christopher Dennis testified that he
