James Cargas Receives Tejano Democrats Endorsement Again
HOUSTON (Jan. 22, 2014) – James Cargas, the first Democrat to run against Tea Party incumbent John Culberson twice, was endorsed again by the Harris County Tejano Democrats.
The Tejano Democrats previously endorsed Cargas in the 2012 election cycle over the same primary opponent as this election cycle. Their members have volunteered their time and donated to his campaign in the past and continue to do so now. “I appreciate the Tejano Dems continued support, encouragement, and enthusiasm for me and my campaign to make Houston a better place. To have earned their endorsement twice in a row is truly a great honor.”
“The Tejano Democrats is one of the oldest and most respected Democratic clubs in Harris County,” Cargas said, “their grassroots organizing will play an important role in our victory in March and again in November.”
