This week in Just ThisRivard Report Editor-in-Chief Beth Frerking and veteran San Antonio newsman and columnist Rick Casey review the primary election results of several top local, statehouse and congressional races.

Among others, we unpack the heated battle for Bexar County district attorney that led to incumbent Nico LaHood’s ouster; the crowded contests in both parties to replace longtime U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) of congressional Texas District 21; and the toppling of freshman incumbent State Rep. Diana Arévalo (D-116) to the man who previously held the seat for 16 years, Trey Martinez Fischer.

Just This will be available here on the Rivard Report and on iTunes and Stitcher at 5 a.m.
