Hays County Republicans appear headed toward victory
Tuesday, November 2, 2010 by Austin Monitor
In Hays County, Democratic incumbent Rep. Patrick Rose is trailing his Republican challenger Jason Isaac. Isaac had 55 percent of the early vote, with a 2300 vote margin. Rose could make up that margin in other counties but it will not be easy.
Also based on the early vote, it appears that Republican Bert Cobb will be the next County Judge in Hays County. Cobb has 58 percent of the early vote as compared to Democrat Jeff Barton, who is a current Hays County Commissioner.
In the race for Barton’s Precinct 2 Commissioners’ Court post, former Kyle Council Member Ray Bryant, the Democrat, is down by 27 percent to Republican Mark Jones. Incumbent Commissioner Karen Ford seems headed to defeat in her Precinct 4 re-election race. She trails Republican Ray Whisenant by 65-35 percent.
