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.

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.

The new District 33 is considered a safe Democratic seat, so the Democratic primary election is tantamount to the general election. With 11 Democratic candidates in the race, we expect that none will gain a majority of the vote on May 29th, forcing a July 31st run-off between the two top finishers.
