As predicted in last week’s cover story, the new Congressional District 33 election features a runoff between Dallas attorney Domingo Garcia and Fort Worth’s Rep. Marc Veasey.
Now, state Sen. Wendy Davis says she’s pulling for Veasey because he’ll focus on jobs and education.
Garcia is focusing on similar things, but he seems to piss everybody off in the process.
“I know Marc Veasey is focused on the priorities of hardworking North Texans, whether it is strong public education to encourage job growth or protecting family budgets from predatory lending,” Davis said. “I fully endorse Marc Veasey because he is the partner we need in North Texas to create new jobs and strengthen our local economy.”
She also gave a shout out to the local candidates that came up short in the race.
“I have enormous respect for the other candidates who were willing to put themselves on the line and add their voice to the conversation as to how Texas can do better, particularly friends here at home such as Councilwoman Kathleen Hicks, J.R. Molina, Rev. Kyev Tatum, and Judge Manny Valdez,” Davis said. “Each of them gave voice to the priorities of the people in this community. And each contributed greatly to assuring that those voices will continue to resonate. I know that these community leaders will continue their legacy of service to this community, and I look forward to working with each of them.”
