Pretty sure we have been handing them tax breaks and they have been paying zero to nothing in federal income tax.

Must be nice to be rich and have the poorest of poor people bending over backwards to elect the people who keep the rich rich.

County Clerk is not really a political office, it's an administrative role. A 19 year old will have zero idea on how to manage people or to perform the tasks that the County Clerk does. He has zero budgeting experience, zero time presenting complex ideas to groups like the County Commissioners that approve his budget, and no clue as to how to stand up for himself.

This is really the fault of the Hays County Democrat party that didn't run a better qualified person for that office.

Personally, despite my current intense dislike of Texas Republicans, unless the incumbent was caught in bed with a goat or something similar, I would have voted for her, because a 19 year old is utterly unqualified for the job.

Smart and driven people tend to exceed expectations when faced with great challenge.
The 18 and 19 year olds in the military do as they are told. Their only job is to listen to their commanders. Even in WWII, there were no 19 year old commanders other than low level squad leaders.

1992 a sitting president who has 8 years of VP experience before that lost to someone who had zero national experience, did we feel sorry then?

Experience gets whooped by youth and a new message all the time. Like the others have said, give the kid a chance.

These races should not be political anyway. If experience is so valued, why are the positions elected?
County Clerk election is required by the Texas Constitution, Article 5 Section 20

Sec. 20. COUNTY CLERK. There shall be elected for each county, by the qualified voters, a County Clerk, who shall hold his office for four years, who shall be clerk of the County and Commissioners Courts and recorder of the county, whose duties, perquisites and fees of office shall be prescribed by the Legislature, and a vacancy in whose office shall be filled by the Commissioners Court, until the next general election; provided, that in counties having a population of less than 8,000 persons there may be an election of a single Clerk, who shall perform the duties of District and County Clerks.

Wouldn't it be the fault of who sets the rules for the person that is eligible to work in that position?

That would be the Legislature. The State Constitution says the position exists and can be combined with the District Clerk in counties with less than 8,000 population, then says the Legislature sets the rules.
