Veasey now has support of both major DFW newspapers

State Representative Marc Veasey is gaining momentum in his campaign to win election to Congress from new Texas Congressional District 33.

Only the Democratic Primary Matters

Anyone living in new Congressional District 33 or new State House District 101 who thinks they can wait until November to cast a meaningful vote is flat out wrong. Both districts are overwhelmingly Democratic. The only election that matters is the Democratic primary.

Garcia plays to type by sending improper, inaccurate email regarding DMN recommendation of Representative Marc Veasey

Domingo Garcia’s thin skin and temper were on display following the decision by the Dallas Morning News to reject Garcia and, instead, recommend Representative Marc Veasey for the Democratic nomination in new Congressional District 33. In an email sent to his supporters late yesterday afternoon, Garcia seemed so desperate to blunt the damage of the DMN recommendation that he made matters worse. He not only improperly used the Democratic National Committee logo and made a series of statements that simply do not stand up to scrutiny, he also misspelled President Barack Obama’s name.

Dallas Morning News says, “Veasey is tested and ready”

New Congressional District 33 spreads across both Tarrant and Dallas counties, including large parts of Fort Worth and the City of Dallas. Many observers expected the Dallas Morning News to endorse one of the Dallas-based candidates.
