SAN ANTONIO – KSAT 12 announced Wednesday it will hold a political debate between the candidates vying for Bexar County Commissioner, Precinct 3 next week.
On Sept. 22 at 7 p.m., Democrat Christine Hortick and Republican Trish DeBerry will face off on the issues during a livestreamed debate on KSAT.com, moderated by KSAT 12 anchor Steve Spriester.KSAT viewers can submit questions for the candidates in the prompt below. What you need to know
With outgoing Precinct 3 Commissioner Kevin Wolff, a Republican, leaving the seat vacant after three terms, the race is likely to be one of the most competitive in Bexar County.
DeBerry is the founder of marketing agency The DeBerry Group, a former TV anchor and ran an ultimately unsuccessful mayoral campaign in 2009 against Julian Castro and incumbent Phil Hardberger.
Hortick, a political newcomer, is an attorney who runs her own practice and once served as a congressional aide to the late U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy. She currently serves as the president of the Bexar County Children’s Court Attorney Association.
The North Side precinct stretches west to east from Bandera Road to Wetmore Road and from the northern perimeter of Loop 410 to the Bexar County line (see map below or find out which precinct you live in here).
Precinct 3, the most affluent precinct in the county, has in recent years been the only stronghold for conservatives on the Democratic-controlled commissioner’s court.
While Wolff won in 2016 with 58.6% of the vote, turnout is expected to be at record levels in 2020. Generally, higher turnout in Texas benefits Democrats.
Other competitive, Republican-held seats that overlap the precinct — like Texas House District 121 or Congressional District 21 — are being targeted by state and congressional Democrats and could help Hortick turnout out left-leaning voters.
While some political observers believe that President Trump’s polarizing tenure could cause problems for down-ballot Republicans, no straight-ticket option this year might help candidates like DeBerry.
DeBerry won the GOP nomination for the seat over Tom Rickhoff during the July runoff election, securing 55 percentage points. Hortick won the nomination outright in the March primary.
Only two women have ever held a seat on Bexar County Commissioner’s Court, according to the Express-News, whose editorial board in February endorsed Hortick.

Piers Morgan blocks Carl Froch on Twitter in row over coronavirus as boxing legend calls GMB host ‘BS moron’
PIERS MORGAN has blocked former boxing world champion Carl Froch on Twitter after a furous row over coronavirus.
It led to Froch calling the Good Morning Britain host 'Piers Moron' after being prevented from seeing his posts.3Piers Morgan has blocked Carl Froch on TwitterCredit: Rex Features
This sums up Piers Moron. When he can’t win the debate he doesn’t let you speak! ???????? pic.twitter.com/CDI825IQsO— Carl Froch MBE (@Carl_Froch) September 17, 2020
It all started when Morgan used the social media site to blast people not following the Covid-19 government advice.
Morgan shared an image slamming coronavirus deniers, that read: "Shut the f* up, mask the f* up and ‘grow the f*** up".
That didn't go down well with Froch, who quoted it, adding: "How about telling people to… Exercise more, eat healthily, boost your immune system.
“All you do is talk absolute BS!! Just thought I’d get that off my chest."
But Froch was then blocked by Morgan, with the Sky Sports boxing pundit writing: "This sums up Piers Moron. When he can’t win the debate he doesn’t let you speak!”
But Morgan decided to reply once more, posting: "Hi Carl, I prefer not to ‘debate’ with people who call me ‘Moron’… just an FYI."
He then added: "REMINDER: Carl thinks Planet Earth is ‘100% flat'."
