Bexar County is getting a new top prosecutor. After almost 20 years in office, District Attorney Susan Reed was defeated by challenger, Nicholas "Nico" LaHood, in Tuesday night's election. 

LaHood gave his victory speech shortly after 10 p.m.  He said he knows he will face criticism going into his first day in the office.

  Long-time Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff defeated his challenger by a margin of almost eight percent. Wolff attributes his victory to staying positive.

The long-time incumbent is eager to come back for another term and get to the next phase of county growth. Wolff says that’s what he focused on during his campaign, and it worked.

It’s a troupe unlike any that San Antonians have seen.  How is Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo not like your regular ballet company?

“Well, the Ballet Trockadero is a male company. We’re all male.”

Carlos Hopuy dances with them.

“So we dance en pointe shoes. And we do comedy ballet.”

I had to ask--"Comedy and ballet, that’s a really odd combination, right?"

“Yeah! It’s really hard for us to make it, like, seem easy. But at the same time, it’s really fun to do it.”
