The two party nominees for Victoria County tax assessor-collector are gearing up to face off in the final race for the office in November.

Ashley Hernandez, 35, who secured the Republican nomination for the office in Tuesday’s runoff election after receiving 5,370 votes, according to the most recent unofficial results, said though she plans to take a break from campaigning for the rest of the month, she won’t relax for long. Hernandez will face Jane Bernal, the sole Democrat seeking the office, in November.
