Incumbent gains Democratic nod for Refugio County Commissioner, Precinct 1

A familiar face will continue to lead in Refugio County's commissioner Precinct 1.

Democrat Ann Lopez beat challenger Gary Wright during Tuesday's primary election to gain the party's nomination.

She received 182 votes to Wright's 78 votes.

Lopez said a lot of work went into the campaign and was proud of the win.

"What can I say," she said. "I had lots of angels. I had lots of people wishing me well. I am very humbled."

She will not have a Republican opponent in the Nov. 6 election.
