Jewish Herald-Voice and Baptist Ministers’ Association of Houston and Vicinity Say James Cargas is their Candidate of Choice
HOUSTON (Feb. 14, 2014) – Both the Jewish Herald-Voice and the Baptist Ministers’ Association of Houston and Vicinity (BMAH&V) announced their endorsements of James Cargas for U.S. Congress yesterday.
“There are many good days in our campaign, but this is an exceptional one,” James Cargas, a Democratic candidate in Congressional District 7 said upon learning the news.
The Jewish Herald-Voice, founded in 1908, is the longest-running Jewish
newspaper in the Southwest and one of the oldest in the United States. The BMAH&V is a faith-based organization
of nearly 300 churches across Houston and the surrounding area.
“Having two well respected Houston institutions behind me, letting their subscribers and members know that I am their candidate of choice, is both humbling and exhilarating,” Cargas added.
